    I think I have 4 buckeyes, marked 1, 2, 3 and 4 in the 1st pic. Is that correct? I can add more pics if needed.

    What breed is pic 2 & 3?

    Pic 4 & 5, are they roos? The Andalusian just turned red in the last 2 days. I ordered 2 blue girls but think this is a splash (?) And a roo?

    The slw has been red about 2 weeks but not much growth. It (he) does have slight growth compared to the one next to him in that pic

    Buckeyes have pea combs. I think you have production Reds. They all look female. The Andy is a cockerel.

    oh no!!! I'd rather have the buckeyes. Any thought on pics 2 &3? Or the slw? Is that one a roo?

    The andalusian and the Wyandotte look to be roosters.

    This is the closeup on the comb on the first pic, that I numbered 1-4

    And the 2nd and 3rd pic comb closeup. I figure this one is a New Hampshire Red maybe? That's what MPC thought possibly as a week old chic

    Thank you. That's what I figured as well. Dang it. lol I've gotten 3 boys so far and only had 2 straight runs (out of 18) and the rest girls but... no one is perfect. I do think I have another roo starting so, we'll see how it turns out. :)

    Thanks for the help

    Definitely wait on the Wyandotte, but usually they don't have combs that prominent without being a rooster, but you never know.
