    All these chicks are about 10-12 weeks old
    Pretty sure she's a pullet #1 but need confirmation

    Suspect this is pullet #2

    Pullet or cockerel #3

    Cockerel #2

    Cockerel #5

    The last 3 are just to help with guessing which breeds they are mixed with.

    1 & 2 are both pullets
    3 is too hard to tell, although that light comb looks like a pullet
    4 the one on the left looks like a cockeral, one on the right is a pullet

    As for what breed they are I couldn't tell you, they're pretty though, especially the dappled white on chicken #1

    #1 is my favorite.
    #4 has been mock fighting with the boys but comb is small and pink

    The 3 questionable ones you asked about are pullets.

    I do believe they are all mixes...


    mock fighting and play fighting is not a sign of gender, hens/pullets do it to each other - its establishing order and dominace.

    That would be great I was afraid we had 5 cockerels and only 2 pullets

    Any other guesses? They are farmyard free range mixes with some bantams mixed in. The large chickens are going to help breed the bantam out. 2 ameracana or ee roos to make some pretty chickens.
