Hi! I couldn't pass up these 7 cuties at the market this morning, (ok, ok,...and a pair of silkies), and I have no idea what they are!

A, C, D - have feathered feet.

My hens are all grown so having chicks again is so exciting.
I'm curious as to what they are so any guesses would be much appreciated.
[Hoping they are not all roosters,
lol]

Thanks!

Thank you. My son and I have fallen in love with them already! I'm afraid now that they might have been somebody's 'rooster cull' because of their little combs, (ignorance is bliss). We already have a rooster and one is enough for us. Oh well, we'll just enjoy them for now and if they turn out to be boys I'll just have to re-home them.
 

kera!

^Thanks for your feedback. If the two are Black Stars, would that mean they are pullets because of their colouring? (Although one of them has feather-y legs
) I also thought Cochin for the white chick and EE's for a couple of them. I've never had an Australorp but they sound like nice birds.

Any guesses on age? I was thinking 4 weeks-ish?

Is it too soon to bother trying to sex them?

Thanks again
