Okay, these are my "I don't know what the heck they are!" chicks. I posted a good feather pic in a previous thread which is here:
http://backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=37599
They are supposed to be a Wyandotte assortment, but the comb is not right. Here are pics of 8 of the 12 I have who are feathered exactly like the young roo shown in the above-linked thread.

#3 Yes, I know ... definitely a roo ...

#4

#5

#6

#7

#8


Any guesses on the breed would help, too. There was a fairly good consensus that these were Welsummers, but I wouldn't have 12 Welsummers unless my order was wrong when it was shipped.


Thanks in advance-

You need to show full body photos from different angles. Just a photo of a chick comb is not any indication that a chick with a larger comb could be a cockeral. Some little hens have big combs too.

Take some more photos. Let the chick stand on its own and get a couple from different views of its body.

Well, I'll have to get new pics tomorrow.
Sorry about that. We've got them up in the new coop tonight.

Should I just take the pics down or what?

Can't help much on gender, but can tell you those don't look like my wyandotte babies - comb is definately not right for wyandottes...
