    they white has 5 toes....


    the barred is a cockerel and depending on what the white one is mixed with it maybe a pullet or it maybe a cockerel. i'm leaning towards a cockerel right now

    That's a lot of gray wash on that (BR) usually its the hen with grey wash , I'm leaning more toward a BS or Cuckoo Marans at this point, some better pics would help to define the legs colors

    The mama's for these eggs were 1/2 white leghorn and 1/2 black sex link. My rooster came from a friend and I believe he is black sex link too (except for the freaky 5 toe thing) I'll try and get better pics and post them...thanks for comments!​

    I think they're both roosters.

    I have a bsl roo (but only 4 toes lol) over a ee/leghorn hen, I've had some interesting colors hatch out.
