What gender are my chicks?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm a first time chicken owner and purchased 2 chicks at a day old from a local farm. They are now 5 weeks old, can anybody help tell me what sex they are? One is an Australorp and the other a Sussex. I have attached a few photos from various weeks.

That's a whole lot of comb and color. I have both in my brooder just over four weeks and they are still pale with little comb growth.

I think you've got a couple boys there.

I'm leaning towards cockerels also.

Oh no, the lady said we can return them and do a swap if they turned out to be Roo's, unfortunately we live in an outer city suburb so can't have them 🙁
