    These 13 chicks are 9 weeks old next week and we're not sure what breed they are. We got them from a rare breeds sale so they should be pure breeds! We're also not 100% sure what sex they are so any ideas on that too? Many thanks!

    Coloured and partly coloured look like Speckled Sussex and 'i' might be a gold laced wyandotte. I first thought Blondie might be a male Red sexlink, but it looks like it might have a pea comb - maybe an EE? I can't see the rest of the pics clearly enough to guess. It would be helpful if you took new pics with better lighting, so we can see the coloring and comb types.

    I agree. a & f appear to be speckled sussex. h, i, j and K all look like Golden Laced Wyandottes. possibly even L & m but the combs are throwing me off.

    B, C, & G look like some sort of Polish crosses. as for D & E, I have no idea

    ETA: D might be a Wyandotte as well

    d: Buff Laced Wyandotte maybe??

    h, i, j, k: Pretty sure they are Golden Laced Wyandottes

    a, f: Look like Speckled Sussex...not sure though.

    e: Maybe a Welsummer?

    b, c, g, l, m: I have no idea

    I do think that a, f, h, j, & m are roos. Not 100% sure on this though so I could be wrong. I could be wrong on breeds too since I am just guessing from what I have read and seen on BYC. Still pretty new to this but I think I'm getting better at it...maybe. LOL [​IMG]
