Hey All,

We hatched out two babies this summer. One is about 7.5 weeks old and I'm pretty sure it's a cockerel but I'd love confirmation. The other is about 14 weeks old and looks like a black sex link pullet to me.
Our roo is a silver laced Cochin. Both chicks hatched out of brown egg layers so they could be a mix of speckled Sussex/Cochin/rir/black star/wyandotte/barred rock. I'm almost certain the cockerel is a wyandotte cross (Colombian or BLR) because it looks like he has a rose comb but maybe someone who knows more can tell me if any of the other breeds have a recessive rose comb.

The cockerel looks like an Easter egger/Cochin cross. It appears to have a pea comb and a small beard.

The most likely mother for the black one is the barred rock.
Ahh looking at pictures of EE roosters, I think you might be spot on. I thought for sure it came out of a brown egg but there were EE eggs in the mix that hatched out too but we sadly lost two chicks early on.
