I get very confused. Could a kind chicken person help this newbie identify sex? Thanks so much.

Can you post a picture of the chicks face and body. Wing sexing-barred-rock-chicks only works with certain breeds and as I understand it, only at a day old. Instead look at comb growth, color, Feather shape when old enough ect. A full body pic may help

The first wing is of the Americuana marble coloring with chipmunk striping down the back. The second and third we aren't sure which breed it is. Thanks again so much for even checking to see for me. The chick with dark coloring was born one full day prior to the two light kids.

Yes and thanks Keesmom,  I have a handicapped daughter and we have been hatching eggs for many people in our area and it has helped my daughter come completely out of a rough depression from losing her job.  Each hatch has been for someone special and this batch was going to be for our chickens with most of the prep being done for them and I was hoping to tell before she got too attached.  As we are not allowed Roo's in our city limit.   I love them all but the rules on that really stink.  This is why I was hoping to find out a little earlier.  :)

Well, if you really NEED to know you can have them DNA sexed for about $25 each.

If you need easily sexed chicks, next time you incubate see if you can locate sex link eggs (red or black). You will be able to tell by down color what sex you have. Some hatcheries have them.

Ah no not that important. We have a lot of chicken people around here outside of city limits that would love the roo's. We just hand raise them to be so sweet and we're looking forward to this being two of our females. I really think I have two males and a female. Thanks y'all
