I posted one of these already, but wanted to post a pic of each chick to get your opinions on gender. Let me know what you think! :)

First off - thanks for the super clear and obvious photos, it makes trying to sex so much easier! Many people come here with extremely blurry or lopsided photos which are of little to no help.

That said, it's really far too early to tell much of anything, though I will say that #4 is sporting quite the comb for a 3.5 week old, and also already developing the upright single-ish "pea" comb that I've found many EE cockerels to develop (many more than hens, who almost always seem to show a nice pea).

We'll be able to help you a lot more if you post updated photos in 6-11 weeks, including a shot of each bird standing, clear and taken from the side, e.g.:

200 something birds. 8 species. ♥ Norman ♥ Norma ♥ Misha ♥ and ♥ Taylor ♥ are my babies.

Thank you so much for your input, it is much appreciated!  I'm brand new to this, so I am thankful to any information/help I receive here. I will definitely be following up with updated photos in several weeks!!

I know it's too early to tell still, but I thought I'd post some updated pics of my chicks! I have a new question about #5.

 

 

#1 If anyone has any idea what breed this might be, I'd love to know.

 

 

 

#2 From what I've read, this one is most likely female seeing the amount of reddish feathers coming in. She's growing very slowly compared to the others. I've also read that some chicks are sold as Isa Browns but are really production reds...

 

 

 

#3 My sweetest of all! REALLY hoping this one is a pullet!!

 

 

#4 Seems to be my most aggressive chick, and more skittish than the rest.

 

#5 This one was sold to me as an EE. Any opinion on that?  Feathers seems to be coming in all white/yellowish white. Cheeks don't look puffy like my other EE.

Can anyone help me to identify this chick..long skinny neck still missing feathers around the neck. And looks like she has big wings compared to the others....

I have no idea, but it looks similar to my #1 above.
