I think you may be right! I had someone suggest that Blondie may be a "she" so I'm hopeful :-) Thankfully, I have 6 "pullets" that appear to all be girls. I'm still not sure about 4 roosters, but at least I'm in the country and can keep them if they get a long and I want to.

If it is a pullet it will not have a pimple. On chickens the pimple is very small. If it is there it is for sure a cockerel. Good luck and tell me how this works!
Your chicks are very cute too!
Thanks for the tip, I've seen videos of them doing vent sexing at the hatchery. I am going to wait and see how it turns out. It's fun watching them grow. I'm amazed at how much they have changed in just a month!
