    So I have some 4 week old chicks that I’ve been guessing breed and sex! Anyone wanna give it a go? The first picture I already know is a barred rock and “she” was sold to me as a pullet but I’m starting to wonder. This is Roxie.

    This is Izzy. “She’s” a bantam and I’m thinking maybe silver laced Sebright?

    This is Pete. The only reason he has a boy name is because of his behavior. He definitely acts like a roo! But who knows! He’s a feather-footed bantam but no idea what breed.

    This is Elliot. He’s also behaving just like a roo, hence the name. Not a clue on breed here. Also a feather-footed bantam.

    This is Layla. I’ll try to get a better pic of “her” later. “She” is also a feather-footed bantam. Feet are heavily feathered and she seems to have the stance of a Cochin What do y’all think?

    Thanks in advance for any help!! Trying hard to figure out how many roosters I’ve got since I don’t want to keep more than two.

    Roxie is a Dominique, not barred rock. Looking like a cockerel.
    Izzy is a silver Sebright. Too early to sex.
    Pete looks like a dark Brahma. Probably male.
    Eliot is a light Brahma. The pink comb has me leaning cockerel but it's still early.
    Layla is a partridge Cochin. Probably female but still early yet.

    I agree with @JedJackson except this.... Pete... does it have a single comb or a pea? if single then its a partridge cochin, if pea comb then its a dark brahma, and female as males have white over the wings and females don't.

    I was thinking Roxie was a Barred rock, but now I realize that Roxie doesn't look like my Barred rocks when they were chicks. I'm thinking Dominique.

    Pete could well be Petra instead, but the silver/white coloration doesn't fit with partridge.
