    We are new to chickens and this forum and are learning as we go. We got some chicks from a local farm a few weeks ago and have no idea what breed they are. They were all mixed in one big bin with a sign listing the breeds on the outside. I know New Hampshire Reds were listed - assuming that is correct for the red ones? Any ideas on the other two? Also, any guesses as to cockerel or pullet? I think they are about 5 - 6 weeks old here.

    The 2nd one looks like an Easter Egger, which is a mixed breed that will lay either pinkish, bluish greenish, or yellowish eggs.

    The other dark one looks like an easter Egger too.

    Welcome to BYC! Very nice looking chickens...so far I'd guess they are all pullets. Good luck, see you around....

    Thank you! We are crossing our fingers for pullets, lol. The kids will be excited to see what color eggs we end up with!
