    This is a rooster (that much I can figure out on my own). But can you tell me what breed?

    I'm not sure how old they are. I think the first 4 are around 2 months because they have a lot of their feathers. And I think Chippy and the other 2 are just a week or so behind.

    Thanks! Looks like I was right about all but Chippy.

    So how do you tell? Like, what's the easiest way to tell?

    size of comb and color compared to age. roos get bigger redder combs faster than hens chippy's comb aint red but its big for his lack of feathers. works most the time and with most breeds. silkies are hard

    well the rooster is maybe a black copper marans but has no feathered legs. all the chicks look like cross breeds. i could be wrong though.
