if I'm thinking right, when feathered in in a few weeks, cockerels will develop feathers that have a "barred" pattern while pullets will remain black. I have absolutely no experience with black sex links though, so don't take my guess as an expert opinion lol.png

:welcome It looks like you have a bunch of black sexlink pullets. :)

Never give up. While we still live there is hope. With God all things are possible.

My husband thought because the back of them was popping up it was a male...so females have a tail that lifts as well remember I'm new to this lol

Black sex link cockerel chicks have a white dot on the head. Pullets are solid black.

Ok...because none of them have any dots on the head but there is one that is distinctively larger and has the larger thing on the beak sorry so new to this I don't know the correct lingo. Also it has a bigger feather area than all the others...so just didn't really know if they were all males or females...we are extremely confused they are 5 to 6 weeks old. Here some more pics.
