    Hello I have 16 8 week old chicks, we put eggs under our broody ISA brown and now they have hatched we have no idea what is what because we got eggs from a few different places. The only thing we are sure of is that majority of the black ones (7) are australorps. If you have any idea what breed or gender a chick may be I would be happy to hear any speculation! Thanks.

    Number 1 is a mixed breed (probably Golden Laced Polish mix).
    Number 2 appears to be a Production Red.
    Number 3 also looks like a mixed breed.
