    We are pretty sure they are all mixed but unsure of gender.

    Wow what beautiful chickens!!!! This is why I love mixes, and yours definitely match that description.

    Your white one is drop dead gorgeous [​IMG] . The only thing I can think of for the mix is maybe a California White with a Speckled Sussex.

    All of your other birds appear to be EE mixes. You definitely have a couple EE/Barred Rocks, and the white one with a pea comb looks like straight EE (if such a thing exists).

    Here's my gender guesses:

    Mable: Definite hen
    Toots: Roo
    Elvira: Roo
    Myrtle: Roo
    Dodo: Definite Roo
    AntiSocial: Hen

    I would have to agree with Pele. All roosters except the first and last birds.

    Thanks for all the reply's-
    They are all ~8-9 weeks old [​IMG]
    Here is my question...
    The 2 BR mixes that we have (elvira and anti-social) are completely different...
    Elvira is darker, has black on her legs, a longer tail, feathered first, and a more pronounced comb.
    Our other- is overall bigger, stands taller, has a larger chest with golden coloring starting to come in, a shorter tail, was slower to get it's feathers, and has all yellow legs.

    From all I've read- it seems like Elvira should be the pullet and our other the roo.... am I wrong? Maybe we'll never know till they crow!


    Here is what I thought was a boy

    Elvira has an awfully big red comb for a girl. I think he's a roo. Mabel looks like the only pullet to me.
