    ds these may be (nor gender). Any ideas? They are about 6-8 weeks old I think.

    #1 looks like a Black Australorp
    #2 I'm thinking mixed breed also a possible cockerel
    #3 the one in the back could be an Easter Egger.


    They look like they are 4 or 5 weeks since they aren't feathered much.

    Solid black one looks like a Black Australorp pullet, the black and brown one is a cockerel and I still think it is a mixed breed, could you get a better picture of the one with the Australorp?
