    I bought them from a straight run lot at a local feed store and of course the young boys working there knew less about chickens than I did. So I tried my best to pick all hens. Please let me know what you think. My guesses are as follows.
    Buff orphangton-Hen
    Silver laced wydonette- Hen
    Black star-Hen
    Their about 3 months.

    They look girly to me. If the black chicken in question (Odett or Odie) is a black star (black sex-link) then it's a girl. True black sex-link males would have shown barring (like a barred rock) by now.

    Do you think I have guessed the breed accuratly?
    And for those who say orphangtons are sweet and calm, Aliece Is my sweetest girl.
    The one I guessed as a black star Her name is Sandra Gomez. (My 3 yr old named it after herself) We think its cute and funny.
    Any how Her brown markings are increasing and my adult black star dosent have that much color at all. She did squeeze into one of the pics.

    This is the one in my group that I suspect is a roo......Sage's comb is just a lot bigger and a lot redder than everyone else's (and these were supposed to be all pullets.......sigh). But you can really see the difference in combs between Sage on the left and Rosemary on the right.
