Hello this is my second post into BYC and I'm excited to finally join. Helped take care of others birds that were sexed and grown so this is my first adventure of my own with raising and to make life more interesting I have a variety of chicks. I will list them with their "names" you know if you have kids in the home even the meat birds get names (not going to post meat bird pics just the birds I need help ID-ing. I will also say my guess if I have one on their breed but most I don't know. Cuckoo marans, barred rock all kind of blur for me.

1# Name: Tac (i do confuse Tac with Little man unless they are next to each other so please keep number in mind). My guess a type of wyandotte gender unknown

ages for Lady, Star, Baby and Runner are around 7wks the rest are around 5wks. Highly suspect Little Man is a male, nice bird but a bit rambunctious when you first pick up Tic and Tac are pretty mellow being held. All of them are handled a few times during the day and I do have temperament profiles for each. Hoping for mostly pullets (do like eggs and have cornish x for my meat supply). All help in figuring out is appreciated. Thank you in advance for help in figuring them out.

I want to add every chicken is handled carefully and with gentle hands some just don't sit their heads still so had to be gently held. Would never harm an animal (even the meat birds get affection and treats raise with love and respect as all living things deserve).

Wow, alot of chicks. was writing out all my answers when @TheOddOneOut posted. 🤣
Agree with all of the above. I am able to see your other photos, so I will add:
#10 unknown breed, likely some kind of EE, pullet
#11 Sapphire gem or olive egger depending on if there is a crest or not. Pullet
#12 EE pullet
#13 unknown mix, possible EE, leaning pullet, but not certain.😊

#4 male Barred Rock
#5 unknown gender Dominique

#7 Female Australorp
#8 Female EE

The rest of the pics aren’t loading for me.
I reposed 10 through 13 with thumbnail size photos to see if that helps. Thank you so much for the input #4 I had a suspicion was a boy. Kind of suprised that the Wyandottes are suspected girls, the one I call little man is pretty fiesty but if she stays a she I will welcome the eggs!

13 was striped as a baby looked a lot like welsummer chick but was in a mix bin. Very fast (leggy bird) but when picked up super calm.
