    These are all 4-month old Easter Egger mixed breed birds that hatched out October 23, 2011. The black iridescent bird is the most dominant, and I'm certain he is a rooster, right? I'm not so sure about the others. Here are a couple pictures of "Specks".

    "No Name" because pretty plain and smaller, but sometimes likes to stand on the water dish and show off.

    "Goldie" is one of my bigger birds and developing pretty tail feathers and fluffy cheeks. Not my most dominant bird, though.

    "Rainbow" is also getting bigger and one of my more showy birds. Kind of keeps to him/herself.

    [​IMG]

    "Red Neck" is my most dominant bird and has developed the most showy feathers so far - quite iridescent. He (I'm pretty sure) likes to peck me more than the others.

    Thanks for the help in figuring out who is who! I can only keep 3 hens of the 6 birds I have (some not pictured here; I only took photos of the ones that have showier feathers, bigger, more likely to be male. Good news too. I have found a home for my roosters!

    well if I have to guess I'd say Goldie and Red neck are boys
    Can't tell on specks... got a photo of the face/comb?
    No name and rainbow look to be girls.

    I'm not 100% positive since it is hard to tell from photos but that is what I see.
