    you have some beautiful birds there, but it would help with sexing if you could let us know the breed and the age. Different breeds mature at different ages, and then within each breed you can get some slow developers

    We have no idea on breed we rehomed them from a school and they had no idea what they were.
    They are around 6 weeks now.

    Perhaps leghorn? (that wouldn't make sense for the gold one, though)

    A few have feathered feet too though? So maybe cross breeds?
    We really are completely lost.

    Classroom hatches are usually mixed breeds. All the ones with red larger combs are male. I do see a female with no comb growth.

    Not sure if these are the same bird but this/these are your female.

    Agreed seeing lots of cockerels with red wattles except a few hens.
