    I have a slew of 12 week old chickens (24). Not a single one has crowed and I'm beginning to wonder if any are male. So far I have figured out most of the breeds, however there are a few I am unsure of. They are a McMurray rare of rare special. I got quite the assortment. Buttercups, a silver dorking, dark brahmas, wyandottes, marans, and dominiques. Which I am 99% sure are all pullets. Anyways. Can you all help me with the following??
    [​IMG] I have two of these white face Spanish. They look almost the same. Another photo at the bottom. Gender??
    [​IMG] I have two of these as well. Thinking Langshan. gender??
    [​IMG] gender?? Breed?? Has five toes and feathered feet
    [​IMG] Cochin?? Gender?
    [​IMG] another view
    [​IMG] breed?? Gender??

    Probably should clarify that I am talking about the chicks in the foreground if the photos when I was writing ;) several of the photos show others that I know what they are in the background ;) thanks for looking. I look forward to hearing more opinions. Excited that you think that the Cochins look female :D

    I'd agree with Wyandottes7, except on the very last bird. I don't think it's a Rock, could be Phoenix, not sure right off what else MMM has that could be that color. Silver leghorn, maybe?

    Last one looks like a silver leghorn pullet.

    Also are you feed chick starter, or just the alfalfa pellets thats in the feeder?

    Those are for the resident bunny ;) the chicks are not a big fan of it thankfully and just eat their own pellets.
