    Well...you would really need to post pics...breeds could probably be pegged w/pics, but if they're really little, there's a strong chance that you won't know sex yet... repost w/pics if possible.

    If you are getting them from a farm, they are "straight run" - you will get a rooster or two (or 5). [​IMG]

    If you must have only hens, either buy hens or order sexed pullets from a hatchery. As someone that has gone to great trouble & expense to re-home little roosters, I would recommend ordering pullets.

    Unless you post pictures, no one will be able to tell you what breed and/or what sex they are. I moved your other thread to the Items Wanted section.
