Hi All

I've been keeping hens for a few years and have had Island Reds, I thought this year I would try and bread my own.

I managed to breed 7 chickens from a homemade incubator with eggs from a local farm. They are now 3 months old, I wondered if any one can tell if they are hens or cocks and what breeds they are?

Any help is much appreciated.

2,4,5,6 are all cockerels. Most are mixes. #2 looks mostly production red. #6 looks pure cochin. #3 is hard to see clearly but possibly a welsummer mix.
