    I have 6 chickens that are about 10 weeks plus old not completely sure on any of the breeds...need help...any suggestions?? The first 2 pics are of the only hens all 4 others have made themselves well known as roosters
    The hen below has green legs with beautiful golden and black coloring
    [​IMG]
    Hen below is the same breed as the 6th picture but does not have the feathers that stick out the side of her face both have feathers on legs
    [​IMG]
    Rooster below has very large comb that is increasing in size everyday and is starting to flop over to the side
    [​IMG]
    Rooster below has all white feathers with grey tips at wing and tail...thought he could be a Delaware but now sure

    Rooster below is a bantam of some sort golden and black in color feathers on slate legs

    A lot of them look like mixes.

    That's what I keep thinking. I got them from a friend bc she couldn't keep them but she didn't order specific breeds

    the second picture looks like a rooster as well, and as said above they all look like mixes

    I agree, they look like mixes. Your "hen #2" is definitely a cockerel, and I'm a bit suspicious of "hen #1" as well, because of the red feathers on the shoulders. He might just not be developing secondary sex characteristics very fast because he's in with so many other boys.
