    Hi,

    We had a broody hen hatch 7 chicks from eggs we got at the farmers market. I was told that the possible breeds/crosses for them are: Leghorn, Easter Egger, Buff Orpington and Rhode Island Red. They’re almost 8 weeks old now and we’re running out of space. We can’t keep the roo’s and I’d like to determine which ones we’ll have to give away as soon as possible. Please help me determine which are pullets and which are cockerels and if possible what breed the might be. TIA! 2ADD16BF-5D4B-4623-8AFA-D983031EF008.jpeg B093B350-36A5-44BD-B81F-C2E335803E86.jpeg CD0C84A5-ACFB-40A3-9C80-8FA5F492E86B.jpeg 6E59EEDB-13D4-4100-9BC3-6C5236232C03.jpeg CF4AC57C-8B62-49C0-BAAE-CDC7F5AF1606.jpeg 66A28BAF-B659-412A-A9D3-C05F6F07C761.jpeg A9F70258-36ED-4FC1-BE74-87FD4461A072.jpeg 3EE5EFC8-D784-4D20-8C3F-04EC4AB21FD0.jpeg

    I see some cockerels but we will need some body shots... mostly of the tail and body

    I agree, full body pictures from the side might help

    1, 2, 3, 4 and possibly 5, are cockerels, imo. 6 is a pullet. 7’s image is too blurry.

    2 and 4 could be pure Leghorn but the others are mixed.
