Males or females?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have 4 chicks that are around 6 weeks old, and two are starting to worry me that they are roosters. I have 2 wellsummer's, and 2 buff orpington's. The differences in the 2 of each breed is very noticeable.can anyone tell?

Are you sure the first 2 are Welsummers? Cockerels and pullets have much different color patterns. Can you get a better picture of them in more natural lighting?
