    Okay got 10 free chicks with the purchase of 50# of starter/grower feed. All that was promised was they were straight run. 4 weeks old now.

    I got a few of them figured out.

    I know they are sicilian buttercup, but are they roos or pullets?

    Now what about all these jokers?

    Cochin--roo or pullet?

    And this white job, he has a few grey spots on his back. He's a biggun too!

    These black jobs, the larger ones have a brown flecking on their backs.

    All hatchery chicks, at this age its hard to tell , white rocks and astrolops best guess, probably all roos . The buttercups , I use to raise them, I am about 90% sure are cockerels.

    1- Buttercup roo
    2- same
    3- could be a D'uccle or Cochin, I say pullet
    4- Could be a California White roo
    5- BR Pullet
    6- EE roo? What color legs?
    7- Black Star pullet
    8- EE ? Could be either gender- not pea comb, so can't tell
    9- Looks like 9?
    10- Australorp?

    It would greatly help if a good close look at the comb was possible, while leg color is also important.

    Can you show us or tell us about leg and skin color for breed determination?
