    I got these chicks as straight runs from the local feed store and need some help figuring out the breed and sex. I am clueless of what to look for and I'm new at having chickens so I am needing some help. There are 4 chicks. Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe. If you need additional pics, please let me know.

    I can't tell for sure- I always wait for an egg or a crow!

    But just to toss out a wild guess and find out how wrong I am.....

    #1 Red Sex Link Pullet
    #2 Golden Laced Wyandotte Cockeral because of the thick legs
    #3 Golden Laced Wyandotte ? (need to see legs and tail/back)
    #4 Sliver Laced Wyandotte ? (need to see legs and tail/back)

    The "laced" birds will develop more "lacing" as they mature. In my experience with SLW, combs will develop early on both the pullet and cockeral. You need to look at the thickness of the leg, sickle feathers on the base of the tail, and hackle feathers on the neck.

    ETA: #3 and #4 I'm leaning toward pullet, unless future pictures reveal something not seen in these pictures.
