    Ok, dunno why the first two pics aren't showing. I thought I copied and pasted all the same...

    Plus I couldn't get my guesses to line up with the right pic...

    So:
    roo
    hen
    ??
    hen
    roo
    hen

    The first two were: ?? and hen

    I will take the first guesses.

    The first 2 pic didn't show but here is the line up for what I can see

    #1 seems to looke like its going to have a rose comb which I have found to be all red but in the roo it is bigger with waddles. So I will guess that this one is a pullet. I have one that is a couple of weeks older than yours and it's comb looks like yours does now. Mine is a pullet

    #2 pullet

    #3 Roo maybe

    #4 pullet
    #5 roo
    #6 hen maybe.

    I think the red ones are pullets and the yellow/whites are roos. what kind of birds are they?

    They are, to quote the owner of the chickens the eggs came from "Buff orpington and whatever else is in the coop"

    I have not personally seen the parents of my chicks. Some are EE (came from a green egg), two have bantam mamas I think cause they were small round eggs and are the smallest chicks. The second smallest has feathered legs.
