    We purchased an assortment of laying chicken eggs from a professional hatchery and put them under a broody hen, three of which hatched. Does anyone have a guess at to their breeds and if any may be roosters?

    They hatched July 21st, so are 8 weeks old. At a glance there are no signs of spirs on any of them, but we have not been able to get more than 4 feet from them because of their over-protective mother.
    The brown chick is completely brown but has solid black feathers lining the underside of its wings and around its tail feathers and is more aggressive.
    The black and white one was easy, a barred rock but we are not sure whether it is a male or female.
    The white one is completely white an has a very small, almost non-existent comb and I believe it to be a female.
    Please let me know what you think!
    Thanks, H

    The white bird looks like a white Rock, and a pullet.
    the barred Rock is a cockerel.
    the red bird, maybe a New Hampshire? Cockerel.
