    #8 and 9 shows what I'm pretty sure is a Silver Laced Wyandotte. I've had several of them.

    How old is it? Most pullets dont get red like that till they are close to laying.

    The chicks who were produced out of the White Leghorn x Barred Rock crossing may produce sex-linked offspring, but I'm not 100% sure on that. You'll have to check. I believe feathersite has some info on how to produce sex-linked birds under the Sex-Link profile.

    #2 - could be a pullet

    #3 - a cockerel

    #4 - I see several in the bunch that have the potential to be young roos. Should become more obvious in a week to two weeks.

    #7 - depending on the bird's age it could be a pullet. But it's tail feathers look very rooster-ish to me...

    #8 and 9 - looks like a young Silver-laced Wyandotte; if it is 8 weeks old it is probably a rooster. Looks older than that, but I'm just going with what you said. If indeed it is older, then you might have a pullet.

    #10 - not really sure...I would have to see the bird in person with the other birds of it's breeding and age...

    #11 - roo

    #12 - roo

    #13 - I think all four of the birds pictured there are roos. The picture is very clear. Even the Columbian colored one I wasn't sure about looks like a young roo there. And the white Easter Egger with its tail in the air looks like a little rooster butt to me.

    ya i think that they are around 3-4 months actaully some, 8 weeks was a lil of an understatement, the guy i just got them from said he thinks around 3 months, but he bought 25 from some mexican food mart as chicks, and maybe they were all cockerals, he said it just said mixed chicks on the box. So if they are what color would be the best to get cool looking chicks with white leghorn hens? thanks
