    We've had this rooster and hen for about a year and a half and are still unsure of the breed. [​IMG]the rooster : )

    Would anyone possibly be able to tell the gender of the following babies as well? Thank you ahead of time for the help!

    I can't help you with the breed, although the roo is a frizzle something. They sure are cute! If the chicks grow at all like Barnevelder chicks do, then the bare shouldered ones are boys and the more filled in ones are girls. Best wishes!

    Your rooster is a sizzle, the hen looks like a smooth sizzle, thus the babies are sizzles. The last chick picture is a boy, can't see the rest well enough. How old are the babies?

    I agree the last one is a boy and it would be helpful to know the age and to get photos where you can clearly see the combs of the other chicks.

    Thank you for the help everybody! The combs of all of the other aren't very large except for the very last one : ) Though some of them have nice sized tails. I thought that they might be white cochin frizzles as well..

    Cochins don't have small crests or 5 toes and you wouldn't get the silkie feathers in the offspring like in this picture [​IMG]

    They probably have cochin in them to get the frizzled gene, but they are what people call sizzles
