Help sexing chicks

post #1 of 5

I need help sexing my 4-5 week old black australorps that I got straight run.

It's too young to be sure, but I'm seeing very suspicious combs on all four birds; the size and redness at this age are indicative of cockerels.

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

Is chick #1 in this photo the same one as the upper right back in the first photo? This one looks more like a pullet given how pale the comb is, and looking back at the first photo it definitely has a different shade and size than the others.

Chick #2 and the others still all look like young cockerels to me.
