    I am very new to this, but just taking a guess, I would say that the fifth one is a speckled sussex.

    Thanks everyone! Y'all are going to laugh but I thought I had a couple Easter Egger bantams when I got them. Oops. Happy with these though. I've been wanting some that are broody and I hear these are more likely to be.

    One more question, I've been doing some reading on OEGB's and read you could sex by the "eyeliner" stripe. So if I'm looking at them right would 4 be a cockerel and 5 a pullet?

    Sadly, it doesn't. You'll just have to wait for breast plumage to begin coming in, and comb/wattle development. If I'm correct, that principle only applies to some auto-sexing breeds, such as Welsummers. :)

    I’m curious about the eyeliner thing. If it turns out it applies to them then they are probably cockerels. Please update what they turn out to be
