Together with the flock
Chick 1- Porcelain d'Uccle
Chick 2- Buff Silkie
Chick 3- Light Brahma, or possibly a Columbian Cochin
Chick 4- I'm leaning towards Black Sumatra, but the white feathers are tipping me off. Thou sometimes black chicks will have a few white feathers. Other possibilities could be Mottled Anconas or Echequer Leghorns, but I don't think it's likely.
Chick 5- Mille Fleur d'Uccle
Chick 6- Mille Fleur d'Uccle or Buff Brahma. Does she/he have muffs?

Cute chicks! It's also too young to determine the sex of your chicks, so post back they are a few months older. :)

Below are my guesses. For all of them, it is too young to sex by appearance, and even feather sexing probably is unreliable. Feather sexing only works on certain breeds, and at certain ages. Still, you could very well be right about the gender, and, luckily, have only one cockerel.
Good luck with them!

Too young to tell gender, and I'm not sure of color either. As for breed, it is a Porcelain Belgian Bearded D'Uccle. Very cute!

Chick #2 i know this one is a silkie. and i believe a pullet




Probably a Buff Silkie. Way too young to tell gender, though; most chickens are unsexable until they're 6-8 weeks old, and Silkies can often take even longer than that to become obvious.

Chick #3 this one i think is a mottled cock





Too young to tell gender. Looks like a Light Brahma to me.

Chick #4 a pullet mottle??





Too young to tell gender, and I don't know the breed. Will probably be mottled in color when it matures, though.

Chick #5 laced pullet?





Mille Fleur Belgian Bearded D'Uccle.

Chick #6 i think a laced pullet





Mille Fleur Belgian Bearded D'Uccle.

Once again let me know what you think! thanks!!
