    I got a surprise special from ideal in January . The chicks are now 6 weeks old. I think I know who are cockerels and pullets but I don't know all the breeds .I know that I have 2 barred rock, 3 black australlorpes ,think I have 2 silver laced wyandottes, so what I don't know are the reds, dark and light, particularly the light red with dark flecks in the neck and tail, and the white, not pure white but with some cream. so give me your best guesses.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    That white one may be a sex link cockeral. I'll bet he gets red on the wings soon.

    prodution reds maybe and red sexlinks agian a maybe...you sure those are barred rocks they look like they have more of a cuckoo patteren, do they have straight combs or rose combs (rose comb woukd be a dom). also one of the barred ones has white legs which says its a cuckoo marans instead. bottom of the feet on the pure black ones will tell you what they are either a black assuie or jg. i think its pink/white for the ba and yellow for the jg.

    im not really sure i could be totally wrong but those are my thoughts :)

    No i am not sure that they are barred rocks. They were mostly black with light spot on their head when just hatched, they have single comb, i am not familiar with cuckoos, i do have 2 with rose comb i think, i thought those were slw. The pure blk i ordered as blk aust. Thanks for the help

    the barred one with yellow legs would be a barred rock and the one with white legs will probley be a cuckoo marans :) 2 of them do look like slw (idk if its the same cockerel in both pics, 3rd pic with the black and white one closet to the fencing)

    As babies the barred ones had black down the front of the legs. I will take a better look at their legs and maybe better pics tomorrow

    Bufff Brahma - looks like feathers on the leg. If there are no feathers, then a buff columbian wyandotte - does ideal carry those?
    The white looks like it's a pea comb? which would make it a white wyandotte. Or it could be a white leghorn (ideal 238) or Rhode Island white if it's a straight comb.
    The SLW with the white wings is definitely a cockeral.
