    Hi all! These are my 7 week old hatchlings. I am not very concerned about breed but I'd love to hear your thoughts on genders.

    These are some of my guesses:
    #1 I think may be a Dominique I'm unsure of gender (leaning towards cockerel)
    #2 Easter Egger Pullet
    #3 Easter Egger Pullet
    #4 Easter Egger Pullet
    #5 Black Australorp Pullet
    #6 Easter Egger Pullet
    #7 Easter Egger nor sure of gender
    #8 I'm not sure

    Could you give us more information on where you got them?

    Sure! I got them as eggs from a local fellow chicken lady. She has a farm with a few different breeds (no Australorps though), and these eggs came from her EE coop. She has (that I know of) Dominique, Black Copper Marans Rooster (the head hauncho rooster), Salmon Faverolle, Leghorn, Buff Brahma, and Jersey Giants. She gave me mixed egg colors, but no blues. The barred one is IMHO a Dominique x Blk Copper Marans mix (slightly black feathered feet). #3 I think might be a Jersey Giant because of the black fronts on legs/feet but yellow backs/bottoms of feet/legs.

    Number one is a cockerel. Everyone else looks female to me.

    x2! Except I believe the last one could be a Black Sex Link.
    All of mine looked like this and developed their reddish/brownish on the front of their necks later, at around 7-8 weeks in my case.

    How old are these?
