    Goldie looks like an Easter Egger and the 2 dark chicks look like my cuckoo marans when they were babies. All still to young to tell sex though. I would wait until they are 4-6 weeks and then you can get a better idea of sex and breed :).

    There's 3 dark chicks :) I believe the first one is a rooster, because of the tail. But I will wait and see. Do you know anything about the very first one?

    hmm... I really don't know. What kind of comb does she have? The coloration is throwing me off... Possibly a serama. Did you get her from a hatchery?

    I got her from my work. (a dairy farm) the owner told me she was a baney, her mom is like a light brown color with a black tail. Smaller than a Plymouth Rock chicken. She could also be crossbred. Her comb? Im guessing you mean beak, which is like a orangey yellowish color with a black stripe on it.

    Her comb is the thing on top of the head. Depending on size and color, you can usually tell if you have a boy or girl.The chicks may be too young to have one. They are cute whatever the type.

    I see. All of them still have fluff. But the 3 black ones and Goldie have like the beginning of their beak ridged, which was different from my oldest one. I'm guessing its just the breed difference.

    The first black one listed on here has black fluff all over his head while the other 2 black ones have white fluff there
