    I need some help determining the breed and sex of my chickens. I have made some guesses as to the breed, but there are so many breeds, I'm not sure. I took a few pictures with my phone, hope they are clear enough....and I hope I posted them correctly:caf

    The second one looks like a cochin, and the third one looks like a Buff orphington. No clue on the others.

    1. Leghorn or Phoenix pullet (yellow legs make me think Leghorn)
    2. White Cochin cockerel
    3. Buff Orpington cockerel
    4. Phoenix pullet (grey legs).

    Thanks for the help...the Cochin and Buff Orpington belong to my daughter, she had to change the Buff's name from Lace to Lance :)
    The Phoenix and Leghorn belong to my youngest son. My other son has a duck (Vickie, I noticed you had 8)
