    These chicks are about 3 weeks old today. Some were hatched on a Sunday and some on Saturday, so i say about. There are 7 chicks that i am unsure of in these pictures, and i have labeled them in the description if you look at my link. I will try posting the pics on this post, but i do not wish to upload all the pics one by one to byc, and for some reason the img tab does not work for me, so i'll give it my best shot. Otherwise, please take a look at the link!! Thank you!!

    Hello all, i've decided to join photobucket just so that i could get these photos up without needing a link [​IMG] hope they work!!



    As for the breeds, I am positive they are all mutts. But if you can tell me what kind of mutts, then go ahead and take a stab at it. x]

    Oh, alright then, thanks!

    Also, if anyone knows how to make the img tab work for photo links, can you explain it to me? or does it not work with flickr?

    I didn't keep up with each chick and number, but it looks like your hens are out-numbered by roosters. How old are these birds?

    I'd say the ones in pictures 1, 2, and possibly 4 are pullets. The rest are cockerels.

    1- pullet, 2- leaning toward pullet, 3-roo, 4-roo, 5-either way, 6-might be pullet, 7- most likely roo
    So, that is just my guesses. From that pics I think the highest number of pullets would be 5, but most likely only about 3 pullets. As far as breed that seems to far for my reach without knowing any possible parent breeds, but #3 looks like (from the comb only which is not saying much) a buttercup cross or some kind or rose comb cross.
