    Hey guys, i know this isn't my first time posting up these chicks, but they're around 6 weeks now, so i figured i could get some more sure responses about their gender this time. Any help is appreciated! And these is one chick who has a buttercup-like comb and has some feathers starting to stick up on its head. I have no idea what kind of mutt it is..

    This one was said to be a boy, but it's comb is not as red or big as the white EE in the above pictures.

    This is the funky looking guy, i'm quite sure he's a boy, since i can see greenish black shiny feathers coming out on his tail... :[

    Any guessed? All help is appreciated!!

    I agree with debs_flock. And no, the white EE does not look like a roo. She's very pretty.

    Breeds... Mmmmmm....
    1. Poorly marked Delaware?
    2. No idea
    3. EE
    4. Red Sexlink
    5. No idea
    6. No idea
    7. and... no idea.

    I love the pattern though -- almost like crele (or maybe it is).

    Alright! Awesome! I hope i can get some blue or green eggs!

    As for the breeds, yea it will be difficult... im not going to ask for all of them, just possibly what the last fella has, because it's just so funny looking!

    Yea it's a definite mixed breed, i just wanted to know what possibly genes he could have to result in his appearance. Thanks for your input though!

    I know some believe that the white EE is a pullet, but for some reason i feel that it`s a cock. It does fight around with some of the other chicks and i think it looks quite big compared to others. Or is it just me? I took a pic of its body, trying to get the legs, and i have one of the tail (it's starting to have black specks in it) Still think it's a pullet?
