    Hi Everyone! I hatched these babies out in April of this year and they are about 8-9 weeks old now. I am trying to figure out breeds and genders so I can name these beautiful birds! The eggs were assorted and there may be some crosses. Any help identifying would be greatly appreciated! Thank you SO much!! There are 6 birds total :)

    #1 Cockerel, but I'm not postive
    #2 Pullet
    #3 Also looks like pullet
    #4 Cockerel
    #5 Cockerel
    #6 Cockerel - not 100%. Does it have a crest?

    Do you know what breeds are assorted, even if you don't know which are which? That might help with figuring out breed.

    Looking at number 2 a little closer...it looks like there might be some brown leakage, and the comb is pink, so it could also be a cockerel. Could be a pullet though, hopefully you get a second (or third!) opinion on that.

    I sure would like to see what the top one looks like now... I think it may be huastec cross, and the other black one may be pure huastec.

    4, 5, and 6 are cockerels. 1 and 2 are Easter Eggers. 3 looks like an Australorp. 4 and 5 are some sort of mixed breed, not right for Amberlink or Red sexlink cockerels. 6 could be a Swedish Flower or Icelandic.
