    Here's some pic's of my Silver Spangled Hamburg chicks and a couple other chicks that hatched out hatched in September.

    The other chicks possible help to id breed (The fathers are Brown Leghorn and the mothers could be any of the following: Light Sussex, Silver Laced Wyandotte, Barred Rock, Barnevelder and Brown Shaver.) that was the seller had in her auction.

    I thinks one is a pullet yes/no? and side question what is the other chick in the pic and sex any clues?? (leghorn dad)

    My Opinions
    1st pic- both look like pullets. The mom to the cross could be either Barnevelder or Brown Shaver (a version of Red Sex Link), but not the Barred Rock (she would be Black Sex Link), not Light Sussex (would make her Red Sex Link), and I don't think it would be the Silver Laced Wyandotte.
    2nd pic-pullet
    3rd pic- 3 roos
    4th pic- pullet. Do the same options for parentage count on this one as the other in question. If so, Black Sex Link (BSL). If not, some kind of cross possibly BSL

    Looks like your guesses on sex are right.
    The brown one in the first pic looks like a brown leghorn pullet, did sh ehave hens or just the rooster?
    The black one looks like it doesn't have a single comb, maybe a silver laced wyandotte cross?

    What is a Brown Shaver? Is it a sexlink?

    wikipedia says that
    The Red Shaver is a sex linked breed of chicken developed in Canada.

    eggfarmers.org.nz says that
    The two breeds that make up New Zealand’s commercial layer flock are the hyline (both brown hens and white hens) and the shaver (brown hens only in New Zealand).

    I have read that the roosters of this hybrid are not for sell to the general public, but I don't know for sure. They look a lot like US's RSL, Red Stars, etc.​
