    Okay,
    here are the birds they were hatchery choice and I have guesses on the breed but the sex is eluding me [​IMG] on at least on 1 because I have no crowers but I do have fertile eggs and these are a few of the possible culprits.....

    Any help on sex id or correction on breed guesses is welcomed thanks for your participation and help

    Black Aussie appears to be a pullet/hen
    1 and 2 look like roos' to me
    Golden campine looks like a pullet
    The last one, I am unsure, I can't see the tail feathers

    The last one is a girl for sure. As far as I know, only girls have that color. The corresponding males will have black breasts.

    Thing 1 might be a roo. Would it be possible to get a better pic of the saddle feathers?

    I think Thing 2 is a roo. Hard to tell without seeing his saddle feathers and tail.

    I think you are right on all of your breed guesses except Chip. Could we get a side pic of Chip standing naturally? Leaning more towards a silver Phoenix or silver Leghorn on that one.
