    Hello all! Hoping to get some opinions on the 11 week/2.5 month old chickens we hatched this past May. :) They came from a "barnyard mix" from an Ameraucana or EE roo with a mix of barred rock/orpington/EE/naked neck hens. Feel free to point out their proper colours too. Thanks!

    1. Black and white barred rooster?

    Welcome to BYC! The barred EE is a cockerel and I'm going to say the light blue one is too, but not certain on that one.

    The rest are all pullets!

    And I must add, all of your chickens are very pretty!

    #1 is definitely a cockerel; #2 kinda looks like one, too. The rest look like pullets to me :).

    #1 definitely cockerel, also brown egg genes. Wouldn't keep this cockerel if you intend to breed to sustain your flock, unless you LOVE bars and brown eggs.
    #2 leaning towards cockerel, I'd say 80% sure hard to see wing shape for final confirmation. Pea combed, so blue egg gene.
    #3 and #4 blue or green egg pullets, sure of it.
    #5 brown egg pullet, sure of it.
    #6 and #7 (both comb shots difficult to see, but I believe I'm seeing single combs, both pullets, both brown eggs (unless those are pointy pea combs.
    #8 blue egg pullet.
    They're all very pretty, and you'll have lovely assorted egg colors.

    #2 is the only EE.
    #1 is a cockerel, #2 is likely a cockerel
    The rest are pullets
