Rooster is Blue Laced Red Wyandotte, but the hens were a mix of Rhode Island Reds/Blues, different varieties of Wyandottes, White Leghorn, Welsummers, Plymouth Barred Rock, Buckeye, and Golden Comet. Any ideas on pullet vs cockerel and/or breed/mix of each greatly appreciated! I'm mostly concerned about gender, but thought the "hybrid guessing game" might be fun for others too, not just me! ;-)

7,8,1 are cockerels, 11 and 10 are possibly cockerels, 6,5,4,2 I think are pullets, could you post a front photo of 12?

That's about what I was thinking...hoping 9 and 3 are also pullets, but we'll see I guess?

Any ideas on how to tell the mixes apart? Should have banded them based on egg color or something... I'm assuming the all/mostly white ones are the wyandotte/leghorn mixes. What do you think the couple of dark ones could be? They don't look barred to me...
