I agree with sourland on Breeze being a cockerel. Were they eggs from your chickens or did you buy fertilized eggs?

we bought some fertilised eggs from our friend as we don’t have a cockerel but I agree that breeze is likely to be a cockerel But I also thought maybe Phoenix is too, just because he is so much bigger than all the others but hasn‘t got any comb yet so not sure 🤔

ues I think your right that they’re mixed breeds I just can’t wait to see how they all turn out I’m thinking breeze way have silkie looks as he’s still seems so fluffy and only has stragerly little feathers on wings

Silkies I believe also have an extra toe.

Ahh interesting🧐
"The Silkie (sometimes spelled Silky) is a breed of chicken named for its atypically fluffy plumage, which is said to feel like silk and satin. The breed has several other unusual qualities, such as black skin and bones, blue earlobes, and five toes on each foot, whereas most chickens only have four." - Wikipedia via Google search.

Sky, Phoenix, and Breeze are likely silkie crosses due to feathered legs, extra toe, black skin, and Breeze even seems to have the feathers. I am not sure about Aria.
Breeze looks like a cockerel but the other three seem to be pullets. It's still a little early to say for sure though.

Thank you that’s really helpful how old do you think they’ll be to know for sure?
