I hatched 6 EE/Buckeye crosses (mom's were EE). They were all hatched on Mother's day and the day after so about a month old now. We only have one rooster currently and he was ordered specific so I am really at a loss as to gender on these babies.

We currently have 16 layers and 6 (2 month old) pullets for just one rooster so we could keep one but I'll probably have to find homes for any others.

Any help is appreciated. I had my sitter help take these pics which aren't so great so if there is something specific someone wants to see to identify (i.e.- combs, feet, etc) just let me know and I'll try to get a shot. Despite taking them out one by one, most pics are blurry so only a couple birds are shown here. I may need to wait for DH tonight to get better shots.

Hoping for some hens to lay us olive eggs this fall.

the first two are of 'Uno' our first hatchling.

This is of Uno and Dos. Dos was #2 to hatch (LOL) and is the one in front in this pic, uno is behind/blurry.

This one isn't a great pic (and chick still needs a name) but here goes:

uno is a boy, dos looks like a girl but the pics are not great. Tres looks male as well, but not sure. Maybe you can post a better pic,

OK, i was able to get some better pics this evening....any ideas? , I must say Uno was the most difficult to photograph, just would NOT sit still, all the others were more than willing sit there. #4 even hung out for a while after....i added a couple extra pics of the whole gang at the end.

chick #6, I've been calling red beak as she (optimism here!) had a large red area on her break, it's since turned to black.

I have to add a few pics of the whole gang with my 'helpers' (Sydney and Jack) from the photo shoot.

I seriously need some suggestions on names, DH is threatening to name them booger, burp and fart.

Although funny, i can't bear to give them those names.

thanks in advance!

Anyone out there that can help me out? I know it will all work itself out in the next few weeks, but curiosity is getting the better of me and I'd like to know sooner rather than later.
