    I brought these chicks back from the stable I go to and have no idea what they are or what sex they are. I think they are some kind of bantams because the mother hen was, but she's been known to hatch other chicken eggs.

    Can you tell if they are male or female?

    It's too early to tell if they're male or female yet. Watch for early pink in their combs. That's a good indicator of male-ness.

    I'd bet they're cross breeds of some sort, and I'm going to agree with the first response that they could be easter eggers, based on green legs. Easter eggers are beautiful mutts that often lay greenish eggs.

    Ok, the kids have gotten a little bigger, I'm not really sure how long till I can tell which are pullets and which are cockrels. I thought I would trow up some pics and see if anyone could tell.

    I think it's still too early to tell what sex they are. They look like EE's to me though.
