    Hey everyone, I've got 3 3 week old chicks that I wanted to verify the breed of and hopefully find out the gender. I tried to upload the images from my phone but the mobile version isn't liking me right now so I made an album on imgur.

    Here's a link

    I'm pretty sure Dynamite is a Leghorn but I'm not sure if it's a roo or a pullet.


    I'm pretty sure Dusty is a black australorp and I think it's a roo but my wife thinks pullet.

    I'm pretty sure oreo is a barred rock pullet from the videos I've seen online but just wanted to make sure.

    Not sure Dynamite is a leghorn - 85 % think he's a cockerel.

    I agree with your wife on Dusty - pullet.

    Oreo - 85 % think she's a pullet.


    Interesting to see what others think.

    Thanks any idea as to what dynamite might be? And do you think we got the other 2 breeds correct?

    Maybe a white rock. (He looks a little stocky for a leghorn), but he might very well be a leghorn - time will tell.
