    Can anyone help me identify the breed and sex?

    This one is my favorite, the most curious and outgoing. Please say pullet, please say pullet.

    The keeper of the flock. We really should have named him Casper, because he is kind to every living creature. Well, except lizards. [​IMG]

    I'd say the first two are pullets.

    Silkiemama, your kitty Sky is so cute! Our boy hasn't been neutered yet, but his dad is as big as yours, looks like I'd better stock up on kitty food!

    Yay! Girls are good news! The man I got them from is happy to trade out if I do have a roo but we'd sure like to keep them all. Any idea what breed? When I asked the owner he looked at me like I was from Mars and said, "the layin' kind". [​IMG]

    I'm no good at breeds, sorry. I'm just getting the hang of this pullet/roo thing. (Practise for later this year...[​IMG])

    In the picture of the three together, the first two look like pullets while the third is a bit ambiguous. Could go either way on that one.

    And they look like good ol' mutts to me! Mutts are great, it means you'll end up with some interesting and probably pretty birds.

    #2 looks like it has greenish legs, so maybe an Easter Egger in the mix.

    I'm not an expert but I would have to agree with SilverPhoenix, the first two look like pullets for sure. Third... my guess would be roo but could very well turn out to be a pullet.

    I had bought 2 Delawares a while back, comparing them to the others that were in the same pen (probably not the best idea) they looked like pullets which is what I was really wanting... As time went by I thought one was turning out to be a roo b/c the comb was coming in more than the other. Turns out they're both roos, LOL. Not only that but they're a pain. I call them Thing 1 and Thing 2, always causing me stress.... [​IMG] [​IMG]
