    Probably some type of mix but I'm curious what you all think. I will try to get better, clearer pictures with my digital camera(so I can ask about sex too, they are 8 weeks now). Going by feathers coming in(wing feathers at a couple days old and tail feathers early) the yellowish & blackish are pullets and reddish one is roo.

    These are all pictures of the "yellowish" #1

    These are all of the "blackish" one, yes there are some brownish spotting.

    And this is the reddish one(in the last 2 pictures the reddish is on the right and blackish on the left)

    Too early to tell for sure, but I'd tentatively guess Yellowish and Blackish are cockerels and Reddish is a pullet.

    Way too young to tell on the Cochin, they're incredibly slow growing.

    Edit: And all three look like mixed breeds.

    Lol totally opposite of what a breeder told me for early sexing haha, but I guess time will tell.

    The black had a growth spurt for sure, yellow is catching up and the red one still looks small comparted to the other 2 but is taking forever to feather. They will be 8 weeks in a few days so I will get clearer pictures, what breeds would you guess is mixed in there?

    Was told "ameraucana" mixes. Are all EEs supposed to lay bluish-green eggs because ones I've for sale in ads called EEs have been brown/cream layers.

    New updated pictures of the 3 mixed breeds. All 3 are now looking like cockerels to me, What do you think? ID'ing them by chick colors(Black, Red & Yellow)
    Also any idea on what breeds they are mixed with? Red(which actually looks more speckled black) has a little feathering on his feet.
