    I've had these chicks for a little more than two weeks and I have no idea what breeds or gender they are! All I know is that the person who gave them to us started out with 8 good laying breeds and they all mixed together. They are a little over four weeks old. Here are some pictures:

    Any suggestions?

    I would say: Pullet?, pullet, pullet, roo, pullet, pullet, roo?
    These look like mixes mostly, of some breeds like black australorp, buff orp or new hampshire, leghorn and maybe some EE, too :)

    Your first picture(bird) is a cockerel - it has the mark of doom(cockerel) which is RED over the wings.

    The little white bird with red comb is also a cockerel.

    All are mixed, that means they aren't a breed anymore.

    Give them a couple weeks to finish feathering but I suspect 2 & possibly 3 are female and the rest are cockerels.
