    Here are some new pictures of our chicks.. they are about 4 weeks old.
    Now that they are a little older can you help us know what breed they are. They are all supposed to be girls, do you see any Roo's in the bunch?

    Cluck-Cluck--the friendliest of the bunch. Her legs are a gray color is that normal?

    This is my thoughts.

    Cluck Cluck is a Barred Rock and maybe a cockeral - the comb is a bit big and red and looks to have big light legs. hard to tell from the pic though. I have a BR pullet named Hidden Roo because it was hard to tell. she had the head of a pullet, but the tail of a roo with green feathers coming in and all. Now she just looks like a BR pullet and laying an egg every day. Some times you just never know.

    The white one looks like it could a White Rock maybe and looks to be a pullet.

    The light reddish/brown one looks like a Sex-Link pullet.

    The other one I do not know that breed, but looks like it could be a pullet as well.

    A sex-link is a cross or hybrid if you will of two different breeds of chickens. What you end up with is a chicken you can sex by feather color from day one. Females are almost all red, brown, black or golden and the males and almost all white. I don’t remember the breeds they use to produce the different color sex-links.

    Cluck Cluck could be a Cuckoo Marans, but I too think he is a boy. Marigold could be a Welsummer and although I am not sure, he could be a boy as well.

    Cluck-Cluck – Barred Plymouth Rock cockerel. (Or Cuckoo Marans. Nor sure.)

    Cars – New Hampshire Red pullet.

    Daisy – Possibly a Buff Orpington – not sure – looks like a pullet

    Pink – White Rock? Not sure on gender

    I'm not sure what Marigold and Poppy are. Wild guess – Welsummers?

    When do roosters start to make noise? If I have any roosters, I have to get rid of them. We live in a suburban city, and my neighbors would be hopping mad, being woken up by a rooster. What do you do with a rooster if you cannot keep them?

    Thanks for all your help!

    Cluck-CLuck looks like a BR cockeral to me. Mine crowed at 7 wks but they vary alot as to when they crow. If you can't give him away, I guess he could go to freezer camp.

    Quote:I agree, Barred Rock, New Hampshire Red, or possibly red-sexlink, NH Red will have a bit of black trim in their tail feathers

    nice assortment... [​IMG]
