  3. hmmm the white one looks like a leghorn maybe? and your cute feather legged one looks like a partridge cochin to me. 2 and 4 are hens and 3 is a roo. not sure about the first pic though.

    Chicks in 1, 2, and 4 are girls

    1 = red sexlinks
    2 = leghorn or white rock
    4 = cochin



    For #3, does he have a singe comb or a pea comb (as found on easter eggers)? He looks an awful lot like a bantam cornish game.

    Thanks for the good info!
    The banty #3 was supposed to be a female. Will it be ok to keep him with the pullets, or should I keep them from breeding? Heres more pics, thanks again.

    I was guessing maybe the tanish ones (in #5) were Buff Orpington???

    The tan ones in pic 5 are red sexlinks. I think the white ones are white rocks (look too heavy to be leghorns). And the little rooster..I don't think he's an EE. Some type of partridge color, but not sure on breed. Does that one have white or yellow legs? It's tough to tell but I think they look white in the pic in the grass. That may help.

    He won't hurt them, he'll try to breed them but won't do near the damage a larger rooster would. I'd much rather keep a bantam roo with standard hens until my over hormonal standard roos chill out.

    There is still the chance that we're all wrong and he's really a she. [​IMG] I thought my bantam cornish was a female up until I heard crowing! lol
