    In my learning process of incubating I tried to hatch a dozen random eggs from a neighbor almost 2 months ago.
    7 hatched and I wanted to ask can you tell me the breeds and who the boys are, please? I mean I hope the pictures are good enough for that. Thank you! [​IMG]

    The pictures are looking kinda skewed on my screen, but it looks like there are some muffs? and I saw a white one with *green* legs? Those signs of an Easter Egger I believe

    1) Easter Egger. Face looks a little boyish, but not really sure. Check the tail, straight tails are female, curved are male.
    2) Black/with copper leaking, maybe a Black Sex-Link hen, or beardless E.E. Looks like a girl.
    3) Black with beard Easter Egger hen is my guess.
    4) White with beard Easter Egger, don’t have a guess to gender.
    6)
    7) Black with beard, does have a curved tail which often means male. But, I have noticed some of my Easter Egger pullets had a curved tail. Those E.E and Silkie are little sneaks.
    8) Redish chicks. Two reds look like RIR, the one with the head showing looks like a hen, the other one seems to have a black shorter/curvy tail, so I am thinking boy. The two red/whites look like Sex-Link hens of a sort.
    Good luck with the munchkins.

    I agree, the black with the copper leaking is a Black sex link hen, perhaps a Black Star? I have two and they look just like that one.

    I think you have easter eggers and I definitely saw a red sex-link, the black one is possibly a black sex link, and I think I saw a rhode island red too

    Don't take it personal but they are all mutts. There is no way to know your mixes without knowing what roos and hens your neighbor has. I agree that the black with the red on the breast look like black sex links. Maybe they had a RIR roo and some BR hens, one of the reds looks like a red sex link.
