    Hi Everyone,

    I have 4 chickens that I need help with indicating their breed and their gender! The chicks are now around 7 weeks old since they hatched on November 16! Some breeds that I was thinking that they might be are golden comets, Rhode island red cross with leghorns, New Hampshire, Plymouth Rock cross but I am new to chickens so I don't know a lot of breeds... Also, I need help sexing 3 of my chickies (the other one has literally no comb so should be a pullet)

    1. I am almost sure this one is a roo

    2. I am guessing a pullet

    3. I am almost definitely sure that this one is a pullet

    1 and 2 are male. Thinking pullet for 3. Some cockerels are just late bloomers and don't get a comb for a long time, so you might want to post a picture of your fourth.

    Now, as for breed. Where did you get them?

    I got them from a school where they incubated eggs for a kindergarten class. They did not know the breed, they said they were regular farm chickens...

    Can't tell with that picture, sorry. Best are side shots of the bird standing in natural lighting. I think they're mixes, maybe a little RSL back there and some other breeds.

    With that history, you're not going to know breeds. Just accept they're a barnyard mix of whatever is available locally.

    First bird is a cockerel. Second is probably a cockerel, but I"m not positive. 3 and 4 look female to me.
