    Here are my 6. I thought I had barred rocks but now I am not so sure.
    Here is the picture of the eggs they hatched from. Number 7 (the green egg) didn't hatch:

    <--- Eclipse. 2nd to last to hatch out of a pink egg. Thinking pullet.

    <---- Chick #6. Sparkles who we think is a boy. Hatched out of a pink egg.


    Also some of the peacombs are pointy and others are flat.... The flat ones seem red though.

    Looks like you might have a mix of BRs and Dominiques (the ones with the flat combs) and potentially quite a few males. How old are they?

    Based on width of the white bars, Batman and Sparkles look like boys. Wishbone and Luna have awfully pink combs at 3 weeks for girls. You'll have a better idea in a few more weeks though.
