    Hi, need help iding breed and/or gender in eight 8.5 week old chicks. They are all from Murray McMurray Hatchery. I got them from the petting zoo my FFA Chapter has at the County Fair every year. My Advisor has no idea what variety he ordered. He didn't care at the time. I'll post three now then put the rest up later because I should be in bed.
    Gender and breed conformation-

    Sass looks like a Silver Laced Polish and I'm thinking cockerel. No Name is a Dark Brahma, cockerel. I'm thinking that Snowball is a Splash Cochin pullet.

    Thumbelina: Silver Phoenix, or possibly an off-colored Silver Duckwing Old English Game (they should have whiteish legs, but she has slate legs). Pullet.
    Rosie: Easter Egger cockerel.
    Buttercup: Not a Sicilian Buttercup, since they have buttercup combs, not rose combs (which she has). Looks like a Golden Penciled Hamburg cockerel.
    Munchkin: Easter Egger cockerel.

    most important part my favs- Thumblina and Snowball(plus Mr. Sass but 2/3) are Girls! Happy Dance! Question- what clued you into Buttercup's sexuality? I want to learn:)

    The reason I think Buttercup is a rooster is due to "her" large, red comb at this age. Only roosters have such large rosecombs at this age--hens take much longer to get a comb of the same size, if ever.
