Sexing these chick's.

I'd wait for a few weeks and send pics again - members are more likely to be able to help you out. Don't worry, your boys will not begin crowing for a few months.

By 5-6 weeks most cockerels will be showing considerable red coloring in combs/wattles.

 

BTW, pullets/hens can make quite a lot of noise too.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

Nobody looks like a cockerel, yet, but that can change in another week or two.
