    going through my coops and trying to come up with a plan. I am a newbie to chickens (started last year) so I lost track of what is what. I received a shipment of an assorted pick of eggs and these are what hatched. Interested in breed identification and gender ( I think two are cockerel , the two cream colors are females and the spotted(?) one is possibly cockerel? I think the brown one is welsummer, but not sure? Not sure what the black one is? They are about 7-8 weeks old. :

    Can you post pictures of each one on it's own? Looks like you have 3 Olive Egger/Easter Eggers, one is a cockerel. You have a Production Red cockerel. And a Welsummer cockerel. Need to see a better pic of the black one to identify.

    Thanks all! This really helps! When they hatched out they were all together and I should have separated them by barriers because it got real confusing real fast. Your identification helps so much. I'm SUPER excited I got two WAM pullets. I think the OE cockerel is cool looking so he's a keeper.
