Hi,

New to chicks and to this site. I must say, in the last 6.5 weeks, BYC has been a great peace of mind for me! Any time I see my chicks do something new, I check here to make sure it's normal! So thank you everyone who posts here!

To my question, I would like to know breed and sex of my little ones. I'm pretty sure they're all some kind of mix as they were only $1.50 each.

These are my "6.5 week-old girls" according to TSC, but I'm pretty sure Rockie is now spelled Rocky! Here are a few shots. Thank you in advance! Amy

This is Rocky, I'm now thinking she's a he from what I've read here.

Here are two shots of my gold babies. The focus changes for each picture:

This is a beautiful baby! Front and back shots:

These babies always seem to be covered in poop. Is that common or is just because they're white? :)

And here they are in a group. I've come to call them my therapy chicks because they are so entertaining, innocent and sweet.

Rocky (is a cockerel) looks like a Dominique because it has a rosecomb (Barred Rocks have single combs). Your gold ones look like Red sex-link pullets. The white ones could be Leghorns or White Plymouth Rocks (Leghorns will grow white earlobes while Plymouth rocks will have red), since they are white they will get a lot dirtier :). The other striped one does it have a comb similar to the first one? It looks like a pullet. The black one is a Black sex-link pullet.

Black-white chicks are Dominique aka Dominecker. Yours have rosecombs, Barred Rocks have single combs.

The gold ones are Golden Comets.

The white ones are White Leghorns, and

The black / gold one is a Black Sexed Link Bird.

Nice chicks, they look happy and healthy.
