    Picked up these 5 at 2 weeks, they needed a home. Should be about 6-7 weeks old in these pictures.

    Breed and gender, or best guess as they're probably a barnyard mix. First one's clearly a rooster.

    Just curious what breeds are mixed in and I suspect I have more than one rooster.


    Thanks!

    :welcome! 1 and 3 are definitely roosters, and 2 might be too but it's hard to see the comb with that head on shot. 4 looks to have a nice small comb and I would say pullet on her. 1 and 4 might be purebred leghorns, 2 and 3 I would guess mixes on. 5 I'm thinking also rooster but again hard to tell with the head on shot but the comb looks pretty developed. I would say mix of some sort on him too.

    I agree with Bantamlover21's guesses. #1, #3, and #5 look like males to me.

    Agreed. Five may be a cockerel as well. I need a better pic of the head to be sure.

    Agree 1 and 3 are males. That 3 bird is going to be beautiful when he matures!

    Just an update. 1,3,5 were certainly roosters, 3 and 5 found a nice farm. 1 I've kept.

    2 is the one I'm still unsure about. It'll bump chest with the rooster(1) a bit. I almost imagine saddle favors and it always has had a faintest green sheen in the right light. All the same age, from the same barnyard mixing pot.
    The dark one.

    #2 is a pullet.
