    I just picked up these 6 chicks today and they are 15 weeks old. I'm pretty sure they are all girls this time around but I'm just curious what breed these 2 are and gender. 1 roo would be ok, but couldn't handle more than that.

    Thanks for you help. If you see any hidden roos, please let me know!!! [​IMG]

    At 15 weeks old they're both 100% pullets! [​IMG]

    1st - Black Sexlink

    2nd - Either a Black Sexlink (check for ANY gold on throat/breast area), Black Australorp (bottoms of feet pink), or Black Jersey Giant (bottoms of feet yellow).

    I thought the first one looked like a black sexlink but the comb don't look right so Im guessing EEish.

    #1 BSL #2 Black Giant. You can pretty much see the yellow on the #2 pullet.

    Look closer, folks, that first one has the red coming in the wings and shoulders and this is something you will see in cockerels at this age, not pullets. If you only go by the color around the hackles, I can see why many of you think it is a pullet, but there is more there.
    They both appear to be crossbreeds. Second one I think is iffy on sex, but looking a bit rooish in the face. I have a bunch of crosses running around out here who are getting ready for freezer camp who could be these ones' brothers.

    the top has yellow legs. it is black with gold neck and breast. hardly a comb at 15 weeks... a black sex-link PULLET!

    bottom is a pullet too but not sure on breed... many black ones.
