Okay, I'm tryng to sort out my flock so there are a few issues here. The first: I ordered chicks in Feb., I received "warming" roos with the order and now they are grown and pictured at 28 weeks. I thought they were Barred Rocks but now I'm not sure, they are black and cream/yellow, not white. The first two are the same rooster. His barring is white and black, his neck feathering is cream/black with random spots of brown. This is another rooster shown at 17 weeks, I'm pretty sure he is a Black Barred Rock? - He's darker than the rest, was twice the size of the others (nearly full-sized) at 17 weeks and more black and white than the others but also with the random brown spots. His neck feathering and trailing feathers are black and white barred. I realize that all of these may be a badly marked Barred Rock or some mix...what is it someone said, if they aren't purebreed, they're just chickens The main reason I care is this... While I was on vacation recently, my house sitter thought it was cute to let a Wyandotte sit on a clutch of all brown eggs. I now have 8 chicks. I have bought hatchery chicks and "pure bred" fertile eggs so these is the first "mixes" I've tried to ID/sex. There are only 4 rooster options - 3 look like the birds above, the 4th is a flighty Danish Brown Leghorn, who I purchased to breed with my birds, but sadly he may be the lowest bird on the totem pole —hen or roo and his breeding options are limited presently. Here is a crappy photo of the light chicks - there are 3. The largest one, lower left, has feathered feet and I only have two laying hens with feathered feet that also lay brown eggs — so it has to be a Brahma Cross or a Gold-Laced Cochin Cross. But in a cross would the rooster's genes not show? I'm leaning towards Brahma since it has the broad Brahma head. The other light colored chickens that lay brown eggs are Cornish Crosses. I think the little yellow one, center, is likely a Cornish Cross. The Gold one top centered...Cornish Cross also? It looks like the Brahma but with a bit smaller head and no feathering on the feet. These are the black chicks, there are five. They look like Barred Rocks - The other hens I have that I guess may be contenders are Silver-Laced Wyandottes, wishful thinking? The one farther back in the food dish is darker than the other four. It had a black beak and black feet. A little better top view of the two darkest birds - lower center and right. They both have dark feet. I'd like to know if they are all Barred Rocks, and if I have three roos and two pullet chicks? The complete list of chicken breeds I have is: Ameracaunas (I wish), Barred Rocks, Black Australorps (not laying), Black Star/Black Sex Links (not laying), Buff & Light Brahma, Cornishes, Cochins, Danish Brown Leghorns (not laying but rooster active), Gold Star/Golden Sex Links (not laying), Nankins (not laying), Wyandottes Any help appreciated. Oh, also can someone confirm - the bird below is a rooster? It was purchased as an Ameracauna pullet chick but is looking a LOT like a rooster to me. Willing to provide any further info/pix that might help. THANKS!
