    I got 25 chicks from welp hatchery on aug. 10 so these guys are about 7 weeks old. I got all brown egg layers... 5 light brahmas + rooster, 5 buckeyes + rooster, 5 black australorps, and then the rest assorted rare brown egg layers ... thinking that might help narrow it down... here are the photos of the ones i'm not sure of... any help would be appreciated and not sure how to tell the roosters at this age :(...

    Second pic looks rooish. Erect tail, very red wattles/comb/face for seven weeks old.

    Third and fourth pic def pullets. Last two Brahmas look hennish. Brahmas can be sneaky though...sometimes little roos pop up. But looks like you got mostly girls anyways. :)

    I see a couple Speckled Sussex and several Dark Cornish in there as well as some RIR. I believe the second pic down is your Buckeye roo. You will have to wait until they are older to pick out the Brahma roo- they mature very very late.

    I believe the black and white one in the 3rd pic is a Mottled Java....I"m jealous!!!!
