    Number one is a RIR and a girl. Number two are Black Sex Links and most definitely girls. I can't seem to figure out what number three is.[​IMG]I'm pretty sure that it's a cockerel though. Good luck figuring out number three![​IMG]

    I thought #3 was an Easter Egger. He is so friendly for a dude.

    Here's the other two:

    #4 I believe this is a he, but I am unsure because of breed.

    The "Americana' rooster that fathered them is likely an Easter Egger.
    #1 is a cockerel.
    #2 is a pullet.
    #3 is a cockerel.

    First bird probably had the RIR mother, but it's not a RIR it'self. if both parents aren't the same breed, the offspring is mixed breed. Plus, it had a pea comb and different body shape than an RIR. It's a cockerel.


    Number 2 is a pullet, momma could be the Aussie, the barred Rock, that's going on her having a straight comb.

    number 3 is a cockerel. from his comb and color I have no idea who his momma was. maybe the Wyandotte? That comb is kind of a funky mixed comb, hard to say.


    number 4 looks like a cockerel from the Aussie momma

    number 5 is a hen. like number 2, probably the Aussie or the Rock for a momma.

    1. Buckeye--an RIR would have a single comb, however, a Buckeye shouldn't have black neck markings. Could be some sort of mix.
    2 & 3. EE
    4. Looks like a mixed breed
