    Hi all! I have 7 chickens, all about 11/12 weeks old. I have 2 Black Australorp, 2 BR, 1 golden laced polish, and - looking for verification here - 1 EE and 1 partridge rock.

    I am curious if any stand out as Roos. I am wondering about my BA and BR mostly. One of my BA is really - runty? for lack of a better term. Its hard to compare her and the other for sexing, as she is really small compared to the other chickens and I believe BA to be a large breed. So could you all please take a look? I'd really appreciate it! Also if anyone could say if they think my breed guesses on the partridge and the EE are correct I'd be grateful!

    I can't get your pics to enlarge so bear with me. I see all pullets. I see two barred rocks, one barred rock, one aussie, a gold sex link, a welsummer, in order in the first photos. I don't see an easter egger or a partridge rock. It's a nice looking group of pullets, they'll make a pretty backyard flock.

    Thank you!! I sure hope they are all pullets, we aren't allowed Roos in the city.

    I had wondered about Welsummer, thanks for the guess! I also had wondered if she wasn't golden buff/sex link - the only reason I guessed EE or something else is her comb looks like a pea comb - or at least, it is much much smaller than the other's who have single combs.

    Thanks again!

    I do have ee hens that are a similar color, but they have more of a blonde look vs your bird's red color. I don't see a beard or muffs, and her legs are yellow. That made me think sex link vs ee.

    Thank you all! I am surprised about the Jersey Giants! I purchased them as BA from Meyers, but you are right! The skin is definitely yellow. Oh well, they are still pretty birds.
