I was given these from a friend. She could not remember the name of the breed. She only knows that the saleswoman from TSC picked her out one male and the rest are female and they are "eggers with lots of double yolks." Supposedly the darker one is male and the others are female. I have done a lot of research trying to figure it out. Are they Amber Sex Links? Are they two separate breeds since the supposed male is darker? The dark one I call George, seems to act like a rooster and he was growing the slowest until lately. He is now growing like a weed and walking differently than the others. He steps high and is very curious.

Above picture is when I first got them.

Above is George. Is is just now starting to grow tail feathers while the others have inch long tail feathers.

Above is George with two of the others I think are girls. As you can see they are mostly white now.

I think you have the sexes right, too--so far any way. They're awfully young to sex.

As for breed, who knows at this point? There are so many laying hybrids out there with different names. I couldn't even hazard a guess at this point.
