    I am new to raising chickens and I picked up my first eight chicks from Atwoods. I have had them for two weeks now. Workers had no idea on breed(s) and they were sold as straight run. Does anyone have any ideas on the breed or tips on determining gender?

    The black and white barred ones are Barred Plymouth Rocks. The others with the sort of striped heads are Wyandottes. Not sure if I see any Gold Laced, but I know I see Silver Laced ones and all those that are not barred appear to be Wyandottes. Already see pink in the comb of the one in the upper right, so that's a male. For sexing BRs, this article works well, though it's a Dominique one, same method works: http://www.dominiquechicken.com/Sexing_Dominique_chicks.html

    I agree with these guesses.
