    I have a flock that started with 4 (which are now about 15 weeks old), I also have 2 that are about 4 weeks old, and then 2 new chicks that are a MAYBE a week old. I got all of them at the local feed store, before really researching breeds, terms (sraight run, pullet, etc). I believe the first 4 were from a batch of bantam pullet chicks, and the last 4 were bought straight run. Pretty sure I ended up with at least one cockerel in the ones that are 4 weeks, and of course, can't tell yet from the littlest ones. Could anybody tell me what they think the breeds might be based on the pics below?
    #1 Dawn- 15 weeks

    #2 Angelica-15 weeks

    #3 Eliza-15 weeks

    #4 Pecky-15 weeks

    #5 Padma- 4.5 weeks

    #6 Parvati (but pretty sure it's a cockerel so changing name to Pavarotti) -4.5 weeks

    #7 Daphne - maybe a week

    #8 Velma - maybe one week

    I'm pretty new to chicken raising but learning more and more rapidly! Any help would be appreciated!

    bantam buff Brahma. Pretty sure that's a pullet, but a comb shot would confirm.

    next two look like buff bantam Cochin pullets

    Pecky--looks like a pullet. I'm not great on clean legged bantam breeds, not sure what she is.

    5 and 6 are black bantam Cochins. I'm not positive the first bird is a pullet....there's not a ton of comb, but those are some pretty red wattles. Second is a definite cockerel.

    Nto sure on the littles.

    Great odds on the straight run bantams [​IMG]

    I agree, and #4 is a White Old English Game bantam

    Thanks all! I kept trying to research and the deeper I got in pictures and links, the more confused I got! LOL
