    I apolgise if you have seen these on another thread but have just recently been given the advise to startmy own thread, as I am new I am still learning about BYC. These are my 9 4 - 4,5 week old chicks, got given the eggs to hatch under a broody, so I don't have any info on them, just know they are sooo cute. the 5 liitle ones hatched first and I think they are serama crosses may have 1 roo and 4 hens. My 4 bigger chicks are a mystery to me as to the breed and sex although someone thought they were all roos and 2 others think they are all hens [​IMG]. I have put them in the order they were hatched in.

    They are still very small. I would post again in 3 weeks or so.

    I know how you feel when no one answers.

    This is a hard age to guess gender of. I'd wait a few more weeks and then try. I know it's hard to wait, but the older they get the better the guesses.

    I'm going to say the those brahmas aren't brahmas, the buff is the wrong color and the light brahma seems too white. I will say I think their possibly mixed breeds and so far they look like pullets. I would repost in a couple of weeks and ask again with updated pics! The last one with feathered feet looks to be a Cochin with that single comb, and 1 and 6 could be Australorps or jersey giants.
