    I need help with our new "gals"! Hoping they're all gals! We have no idea what the two brown ones are? Carmella the lightest brown and Gretel the dark brown have us stumped. Hermione is a silver laced Wyandotte and Ingrid is possibly an Australorp?[​IMG]

    Hermione is indeed a Silver Laced Wyandotte. The black chick could be any number of black breeds (Australorp, Orpington, Black Sex-link, etc.). Both red chicks appear to be hatchery Rhode Island Reds, also known as production reds.
    The bird in the upper left/far back corner in this photo looks like it is a cockerel. However, your other three do appear to be pullets. It is a little young to tell for sure, though.

    I'm with Melabella, looks like two boys and two girls to me, too. I agree with the others on breeds.
