    [​IMG]These chicks are a little over a month old. We were so excited about picking them out that we forgot to ask about the breed, still watching and waiting to learn about their sex. We are a little concerned about the black/white one in the front (bigger than the others and comb more pronounced but hoping just a few days older). Thoughts?

    Here's another pic of the one in question. Bigger comb, red around mouth but maybe too early to tell...[​IMG]

    Gosh, looks like two barred rocks and two (maybe) sex-links.

    Sorry but the one in front looks like a boy. Not only is the comb big, but males have two copies of the barring gene and are twice as barred/light/ bright as the girls.

    We think the same. Too handsome with those fancy colors/designs. They are all so happy together. I would hate to have to find a new home for any of them! Ty for your feedback!!

    You have what looks like two production red pullets, and a pair of barred Plymouth Rocks. The male barred rock has more white in his barring, and the female has more black in her barring.

    I think the darker barred bird might be a roo, too... maybe a sex-link, cuckoo marans, or dominique. that comb looks mighty broad and pink for one month. It also looks like it might be a rose comb - but maybe that just camera blurring?
