How do I sex my 4 week old chicks?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have six 4 week old chicks; 2 Columbian Rock Cross, 2 Barred Plymouth Rock, and 2 Buff Orpingtons. Are there any noticeable differences between hens and roosters at this age? 2 of them developed their tail feathers later, and I think they are roosters.

The roosters will start to get pink combs and wattles earlier. You should start to see them in the next month, girls will remain orange yellow for a while longer.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
