    About 3-4 weeks ago we bought our very first dozen chickens. Since then I have been doing LOTS of self educating. One thing I can't do is figure out if my babies are boys or girls. I also suspect that my two "Silver Laced Wyndotte's" are not what they are supposed to be.
    I have taken about 3 pictures of each chicken in hopes that someone can help determine/confirm breed and if anyone can already tell if they are boys or girls.

    #1 Easter egg?[​IMG]

    A lot of pics, but the 4th (5th and 6th) one looks male to me. The solid black is probably a Blk Australorp. Definitely not a Wyandotte.

    The black one looks like a male to me. I have 3 Rhode Island Reds and my only hen has always been the biggest. I would just watch the coloring/size of their combs and wattles. The faster they grow and/or turn red the more likely they are to be a rooster.

    #3 is a Buff Orpington
    All of the "RIR" look like Production Red Partridge Rock crosses.
    The black chicks could be Black Australorpes, Black Sex links or Jersey Giants. BA have pink soles and JG have yellow soles. Check their feet and see which one they are. Black Stars usually have red markings around their neck.
    #9 isn't an EE, looks like a Production Red or Red Star.
    #11 is some sort of Bantam, possibly an OEGB

    It's a bit early to be guessing genders, in a week or two it will be much clearer.
