    Here are more pics of my little flock of assorted chicks. I'm trying to guess what breed and sex they are. Chick 1 has fuzzy little feathers on it's legs and white wing feathers coming in ... a Brahma of some kind? Hopefully a girl. Chick 2 is all black with a whitish chest and belly, along with black washed legs... again hopefully a girl. Chick 3 is a little older I'm guessing...maybe a Barred Rock pullet? I know some of you are very experienced with breeds and sexing, so thought I'd try. Thanks! :)

    Your first chick may be a Mottled Cochin. The second chick is a Black Sex-Link pullet probably, and the third may be a Barred Plymouth Rock, likely a cockerel.

    x2 But it is still a little young to tell for sure, in both the gender and breed.

    Chick 1 looks like the Black Orpington chicks I just picked up. At least I was told they are Black Orpingtons, lol :)
