Part 1:

Daddy Roo was a Blue Wheaten EE. So handsome!
Momma 1 is a peach EE colored one (if you know the name of that please share)
Momma 2 is a white/black ?splash EE.
Momma 3 was a PBR.
Momma 4 was a Wyandotte.
They all shared nests so the only ones I know came from whom are the PBRs.

ALL ARE 5 WEEKS OLD (currently & when pic was taken)


What color is the Momma called?


This one looking at camera - can you tell sex? (I have pics from when born but some were eaten so who knows who is who)


Black one sex? Light one sex/color?


Sex/color? It's a rooster, isn't it?

Sex/Color of this dainty little chick?

I think the barred ones are going to be hens because it takes two copies of the barred gene to make a barred male and there was only one barred parent. The one that sort of resembles a blue wheaten pic 4 is male.

No it doesn't. If fathered by a BR, all will be barred. If the mother was barred, only males will be barred.

All look like boys except the black and light one that are in the same picture.

Yep I answered to fast . But if the roo was blue wheaten and the hen barred all barred ofspring are 100% male.
