    A friend gave me some eggs, and successfully most of them hatched and are now nearly 16weeks old! The only problem is I don't know what breeds they are. Also have no idea whether they are hens or cockerels!!!!

    Yes, you can post pictures. In fact, it's kind of imperative for us to help. Unless someone else on here is psychic. I am not. :p [​IMG]

    Does your friend at least have an idea what they MIGHT be. i.e. he has x, y and z breeds of hens and a, b, and c breeds of roosters?

    I'm not entirely sure, but I think 2 is a RIR and 3 is OEGB, but I am probably wrong [​IMG]

    I've never played this game before and will probably get them wrong:

    1 - no idea but looks like a hen to me
    2 - RIR (Rhode Island Red). Would need a side shot to get a good guess on gender but I think I'm seeing a tail stick up behind. Could be a roo?
    3 - looks like a game bird but I don't know enough about them to be more specific than that. I think hen.
    4 - no idea
    5 - possibly a Barred Rock (or BR x). I'm thinking roo on this one too.
