    Out of all my chicks, I totally thought this one would be a rooster. It exhibits all the flashy characteristics, bold, not shy, today it was chasing my dog around.

    I got this chicken out of the frizzle and seabright cage. What do you guys think?

    2 months old today, two of my other chicks this age are starting to crow... this one hasn't.

    Those are all cockerels. Not sure what you mean by type. Are you referring to variety? I'd say they're mixed variety, excluding the single White one. Given how poorly they fit the standard I'd say they may be second gen Bantam Cochin mixes.

    Agree with Queen Misha---red bantam Cochin cockerel, and mixed breed silkied cockerels.
