    Any help with identifying these babies appreciated! I'm brand new at this. My SO, who I moved in with 5 months ago, has 4 hens and 2 ducks he got last year, and we're adding to the flock. I'm so excited to see what they're going to be. Also, any guesses on sex? I'm thinking they're not old enough yet?

    Sorry the pictures aren't the best. It's hard to get them to model. LOL

    Thanks!!

    Here are some new pics of some of them. Any new guesses? I can't wait to see what they're going to be!

    How do you tell that they're cockerels?

    They are about 8 weeks old and already have bright pink combs. Girls' combs won't turn pink until they are almost old enough to lay eggs.

    Ahhh.

    And... Pooh. They are literally (small) backyard chickens, so we may have to re-home the cockerels.
