    Ok, here they are... my new babies! [​IMG] I know which are the Easter Eggers and of course which one is my Self-blue d'Uccle [​IMG] The rest are a mystery to me..... I will post in groups based on who I got them from [​IMG] I've posted pics of their combs as well. Please help me ID their breeds [​IMG] By the way, the red spots on their heads are the ones that I have marked "girls", based on my pendulum sexing trial. [​IMG]

    These are from my son's friend. I think some of their chickens were red sex-links. They said RIR [​IMG] One of the roos is cream.(mostly)

    And the strange little brown one that doesn't really have a pattern....

    [​IMG]

    These are from Julie (jab91864) I know the little blue one is my d'Uccle.... but the rest are a mystery. I do have my guesses though [​IMG] And, for those of you following my hatching thread.. I must have mixed those two up, because even though the brown one looks like none of the others.... the gold one is CLEARLY like the other 3 buffs [​IMG]

    Here's what the possibilities were...

    Hens: Buff orps, Austrolorps, Chanteclers, Blue and Black Cochins, BLR Wyandottes, GL Wyandotte, LT Brahma, EE's

    Roos: Black Cochin, Blue Lace Red Wyandotte, Blue Orp

    This one..... Austrolorp mix????

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And these are the buffs... my guess is Wyandotte mixes???

    You have some mighty cute babies! The little brown one without a pattern kinda looks like my extra free one I got which was a partridge rock, but it's just a guess as I am a new at this. Here' a picture of mine.

    I noticed that some chicks have very jagged combs starting, and some have flat / smooth combs.

    Are the jagged ones, boys???

    I just got my little frizzle chicks and see the same jag on some, and have been wondering if these will be the boys???


    Thanks,
    Lee

    Nope, the ones with toothed combs are a different breed than the others [​IMG] But, if you have all one breed and all the same age and some have bigger combs, this MAY be an indication of sex, but you have to wait and see [​IMG]

    I can't help with breeds or sexes, but you've got to be a professional photographer. What cool pics!! And what kind are the ones that look like they have black eyeliner on? My goodness they are cute!!!

    What cute chicks!! Your photography IS great--how do you get those terrifc close-ups of their little faces?--you can see all the details!

    Sorry, but I am still quite new (1 year only) to chickendom so I still have fun guessing what my chicks are. I try to use the Murray Mcmurray catalog I have, but still I have a hard time
