    Do you have a guess who the parents could have been or have you asked the person who gave you the eggs, what the possibilities were? <3

    No because the guy who gave them to us like lives in Queensland and i live in Sydney NSW, he was down on a trip and gave them to us. So i really can't get in contact with him. Thanks though now i know which ones i'm keeping and which ones i'm gonna sell.

    They all look like mixed breeds to me. The first and last ones look like pullets. The rest have suspicious combs already.

    2-5, and 9 are too red for pullets, those are your for sure cockerels. 6 and 7 have a whole lot of comb, keep an eye on them, they are probably boys. 1 and 11 are definitely pullets. 10 could be a pullet or a cockerel at this point.

    Probably a pullet, unless it starts to get that golden color on the wing/shoulder area. Then it would be a cockerel.
