    On the gender, all are male except 2 & 5. I'm sure on this. Breeds...1 Barred Rock. 2 Rhode Island Red. 3 A lavender something. 4, 5 & 6 crosses-note the small crests on them.

    Not sure on breed, but to me most look like little roos (comb/wattle growth/color) - # 2 and 5 look like possible pullets.


    Cute chicks!

    The only one I'd guess with any confidence is #2. She looks like a Russian Orloff pullet. I think the black and whites are Barred Rocks. You do have a lavender roo but I'm not sure what breed. I don't think I've ever seen a lavender roo with a single comb.

    Congratulations on your 100% hatch! The bad news is that they look mostly like roos (not #2 though...). The good news is that it looks like the same photos are posted for #4 and #6... so maybe there's one we haven't seen and she is a girl?

    I'm fairly certain that chick no. 4/6 is a cuckoo marans roo. Looks like some preliminary light leg feathering on white legs which would put him in the group with some french genetics. Legs are too white to be barred rock and the markings are too blurred.
