    This bird is part Americauna and Austrolorp. Five weeks old.

    The rest of these birds were left on my doorstep in a box. They are five week old too. I know two of them are Turkens.

    Are they all roosters, so I can shoot myself now?

    The second one and the last 2 are pullets and the rest are cockerels.

    The first one is a pullet, and in no way part Ameraucana. It would need a beard and muffs as well as a pea comb.

    The second is a splash colored bird, not sure what breed or cross. It is a pullet though.

    Third is a cockerel, almost looks to be a Sex Link.

    Fourth is a Naked Neck cockerel.

    Fifth is a Leghorn cockerel.

    Sixth is an Easter Egger pullet, seventh is a Turken x (likely Silkie) pullet.

    Quote:I am going to disagree, the first is a cockeral, I also believe the second one to be a cockeral(edited to say I saw it in the background of the 1st pic, better view Its most likely is a pullet). Hard to tell with it being white and not seeing the comb well. The last two are pullets

    ok, first, The Beard/muffs & peacomb is a stereotype and is not entirely true or reliant. However I agree that it is not an Easter Egger. It is a cockerel though...

    I have no guesses but wanted to say, I have never heard of a visit from the Chicken Fairy before!

    I think # 1 is an Australorp, not mixed with Americana or EE. I am very sure it is a rooster. #2 may be a pullet. The two in the last pic are pullets.
