    I'm new to owning chickens. When I got my 6 chickens they were only 2 weeks old and were suppose to be Black Sexlink pullets. They are now 14 weeks and I'm thinking some might be cockerels and not sure of the breed. Any help would be appreciated.

    Where did you get them from? All but the 4th kind of look like someone bred 2 sex-links together.

    1) Mixed Breed Cockerel (might be a black sex-link... by the coloring coming in at his neck, he is not a pure barred rock)
    2) Barred Rock Pullet
    3) Mixed Breed Cockerel
    4) Mixed Breed Cockerel
    5) Mixed Breed Pullet
    6) Pullet possibly pureblood or mixed breed

    I'm pretty sure they're all mixed breed birds.
