A little help would be appreciated. First, the Mamas and the Papa, a Speckled Sussex rooster with Buff Orpington, Australorp, Delaware, and Speckled Sussex hens.

Then the chicks.

The black ones are pretty obvious, out of the Australorp hens. Not sex linked.

The solid yellow one, on the right with the two black ones, I believe is a male out of a Delaware hen. A sex link.

The three darker reddish ones. I believe out of the Buff Orps. I’ve got one that is not shown here that is a tad more chipmunky and barely darker which I think is out of the Speckled Sussex. Not sex linked.

Then the yellowish one that is a little darker than the yellow one and just to the upper left of the yellow one. I think this is a female red sex link out of the Delaware. I expected them to be a bit darker red.

Any corrections or do I pass the exam?

Yeah but that tune gets pretty monotonous. Cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep.

Edited to add:

cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep
