    Any help would be appreciated. We think we have Barred Rocks and either Americauna's or EEs (but not sure). We also think we have 2 roos and 8 pullets.

    They are cute! [​IMG] We have a couple in our brooder right now that were hatched out this week that look like a couple of yours with the black around the eyes and the "chipmunk" looking colors on their backs. It's nice to see what ours may look like in a few weeks.

    On a side note when ours were hatched we had some BR's and someone said you could tell by they spots or something when they were born if they would be roos or hens. I'm sure someone with more experience will help you out!

    Too early to tell on the easter eggers, but the last BR looks like a boy.

    The last barred rock is a Rooster, the other barreds are hens. All the others look like EEs which are very difficult to sex until much older.
