    My daughter's Kindergarten class hatched 3 chicks this spring which we took home. I have no idea what breeda they are (could even be mutts). The two brown colored birds came from blue eggs, the black one came from a brown egg. All are 7 weeks old. I was hoping the black feathered one was a black sex link (and therefore female) but based on comb and feathers I'm not so sure. Unfortunately we can't keep any Roos where I live.

    Fairly certain this one is a roo

    I'm worried about comb and waddle development as well as the curling tail feathers

    Any thoughts on sex and/or breed would be appreciated!

    Top is a boy, and if he came out of a blue egg he is a mix called an Easter Egger. The black one is a boy but has the colors of a girl black sexlink, so I'm not sure on him. And the bottom is a girl, also a mix called an Easter Egger.
