    I need help with the gender of a few more of my flock...I'm pretty sure on the breed but correct me if I'm wrong there too. These were all part of an assortment from McMurray. They're about 8-9 weeks:

    1.Dominiques - both pullets

    2.Dominique - cockerel

    3.Buff Cochins - both pullets

    4.White Laced Red Cornish - pullet?

    5. White Polish - pullet?

    6.White Faced Black Spanish - pullet? (I'm hoping...this one is really sweet)

    7. Dark Brahma - pullet?

    All girls except number 6. I think those look like Barred Rocks, but someone correct me if not. I have not raised Dominiques before.

    I think all the Doms are girls, I'm not seeing anything boyish about number three. The polish I don't even guess. The others I think you're right except the black one. I think she's an Andalusian or Mincora, I don't really know enough to tell the difference. The Spanish have a large amount of white on their faces, not just the earlobes. McMurray offers both breeds I mentioned in black, see if she matches one of them.

    Pretty flock, I love the buff cochins!

    No, I'm pretty sure its a WFBS. The assortment I got didn't include any minorcas, and I'm told that the white face doesn't really come out until they go through a molt, and this one's only a couple months old. I'm actually pretty convinced that it's a pullet too because all of my other cockerels have bright red combs. And in the WFBS, the pullets have big pale combs. I guess I'll just have to wait and see with that one! [​IMG]

    Thanks with the help, especially with the dominiques. I'm really happy they're all hens, they're really cool.
