    Hey all, I recently picked up a few chickens and I was wondering if I could get some help identifying the breeds please. Also, I think one of these "girls" may be a cockerel, the last one in the list (#4), any ideas? They are all about 18 weeks old.

    Quote:Yep, I agree! #4 is def a hen. Boys don't have that coloring. I have no idea what #2 is either, other than a pretty hen. lol

    I totally agree with the previous posters on all the breeds except #3. And that last one is 100% girl. [​IMG]

    #3 I don't think is a White Leghorn. I can't see her earlobes, but if it was a White Leghorn they would be white (white earlobes=white eggs). And since it's the same age as the Brown Leghorn, wouldn't it have about the same size comb? I have no personal experience with Leghorns though.

    My guess on her is White Rock.

    Yep, all 100% girls. The white one is a Leghorn indeed, I can see the white earlobe. [​IMG]

    Your white leghorn looks exactly the same as mine but mine are 16 weeks. I wonder how long do i have to wait for eggs...
