I have 8 chickens that I purchased as pullets from Cherokee Feed and Seed store here in GA. They are 14 weeks old, four are Ameracauna and four are supposed to be Black Australorp, as you can see they are look more like Barred Rocks. From looking at the feathering I am not seeing any pointy feathers to say rooster but I would appreciate any input on gender and breed. Many thanks for input since I'm a newbie.

#5 Little One - Ameracauna we almost thought we had a bantam, still a bit smaller than the others guess just a runt, but she holds her ground.

My take for what it's worth:
#1 Brownie - Ameraucana: YES
#2 Falcon - Barred Rock?: Maybe a Cuckoo Maran - Dark Chocolate eggs
#3 Gray - Barred Rock?: Maybe a Cuckoo Maran - Dark Chocolate eggs
#4 Hawk - Ameraucana: May be a Welsummer - Brown speckled eggs
#5 Little One - Ameraucana: YES
#6 Midnight - Barred Rock?: Maybe a Cuckoo Maran - Dark Chocolate eggs
#7 Speckles - Ameraucana: May be a Welsummer - Brown speckled eggs
#8 Spot - Barred Rock? Maybe a Cuckoo Maran - Dark Chocolate eggs

I see no roosters, and no Black Australorps. The good news is I believe your cuckoo barred pullets will be Marans! Please let us know when they start laying. 22 to 24 weeks.

Thanks! Looking forward to those first eggs and maybe I'll know a little more about their breed.
