Hey everybody,
I have been a long time stalker... but i'm finally coming out with some pictures and ready to ask for help. I have looked at SO many pictures of baby chicks and i've been trying to guess gender/breed since the day I got them.
I got a rare assortment from McMurray Hatchery and I think I know what some of my chicks are... but some I have no clue and I'm starting to go crazy trying to solve all of the mystery's.
My husband looked through my phone and found hundreds of photos of the chicks since they were day 1... and thinks I may have a problem.
Please let me know your thoughts. They aren't the best pictures, and i'm happy to take more just let me know what could help.

Well I believe I see some Brahma and a possible Australorp
That's what I was thinking too... The Australorp is what I keep going to, I just wasn't sure because it looks a little different and I wasn't sure if the dark spots on the side of it's head were a sign of another chicken. It is the most daring chicken... always has been. Anytime I come around it is right out to see what i'm doing... it jumps right up on the side of the pen to look at me (and my 6 month old son) it gets out and walks around... it's just generally a very busy and curious bird, which makes me think rooster (right?)

I have been bouncing back and forth between Cochin and Brahma with the others... I just can't figure it out.

I did pull those out (a friend gave me a couple) and he told me to not even think about it... he'll come around after I get our 3 year old excited about it and have her tell him about the "science experiment" we're going to do.
