    OK so what I think I have is maybe a brown leghorn but not sure, barred rocks, and maybe SLW's. I have 14 chicks total but I have them broken down into maybe male/maybe female groups. Trying to figure out which ones the kids can get attatched to. I think these are all males. I know nothing about feathers but they all have pretty good sized combs, all are developing waddles, the combs vary in color from pink to red. The Barred rocks do have a dark wash but so did my last roo. On the ones that might be SLW's the breed is not a sure thing. I got this out of an assortment at the farm store. 5 chicks like that 2 with rose combs 2 with regular combs. btw the ones with regular combs are not pink at all and I think might be girls but I do not have their pics done yet.

    These are pics of only the ones I think are roos. I will do the gals later on.

    BR1 for this one and BR3 their combs are a pale pink but they are getting waddle development and their feathers and color are identical to #2
