    Ok I have a few on this thread so please be patient lol Any advice is greatly appreciated! And all of these guys are about 4 weeks old

    My first is a red frizzle cochin I got from my hardware store. I'm thinking she is a pullet

    Second is my Black copper maran I got from the local :bageniece farms"it" chicken guy. He also provides chickens to my sons school and fertile hatching eggs for their spring hatchings. I think he is a roo but I have heard bcm pullets have lard combs.

    3rd is my mille Fleur who I got along with the frizzle at my hardware store I'm thinking roo but I hope not.Compared to the other fleurs they had this one had thin legs where as the others had VERY thick legs and way bigger combs.[​IMG]

    4th is my salmon faverolle.He came from the "it" chicken guy. I think he is a roo.

    And last is my polish. I'm thinking my polish is a pullet. She is also from the chicken guy[​IMG]

    So my assumptions are
    Frizzle = pullet
    Copper maran = Roo
    Mille Fleur = Roo
    Salmon Fav = Roo
    Polish = pullet

    At this point I agree with your assumptions.

    Frizzle = pullet
    Copper maran = Roo
    Mille Fleur = Roo
    Salmon Fav = Roo
    Polish = pullet for now

    Thank you. I should of guessed I might have gotten another mystery breed because my older hen from the same guy was a mystery as well. You suggested might be a mottled java. It just stinks this guy is supposed to be the best around and obviously isn't. I purchased from him 2 diff times and both times have gotten different breeds than he sold them as.
