Are we roos or hens???

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone! I have my first group of chickens and I really have no clue how to tell if they are roosters or hens. They were not sexed when I bought them. The coop is getting crowded and I need to sell my roosters as soon as possible! Please, let me know your opinions on gender for these 9 week old babies. I have put letters on their pictures hoping to make it easier. I sure hope they are mostly hens. This is my first time to post- so excited to see your thoughts!

Maybe I have had too much coffee today and my eyes are loopy from it, but I see all cockerels, except that last one- that I have no idea wink.png Hooefully someone else can weigh in!

I have a wonderful loving family, so that means my chickens get alot of love from us-well from me & my son mostly, but I like to pretend my husband loves it too! 1 collie dog,3 cats, 4 Leghorns, 1 OEGB rooster, 7-Gold Comets,2 Dekalb Amberlinks, 2 Buff Brahma's, 1 Light Brahma's, 4 Naked Necks, 2 Col. Rock Cross, 1 Silver Laced Wyandotte hens, 2 Silikes, and more breeds on the way! .

Agreed... Maybe one of the Barred Rocks. Its waddles are a little smaller, but not by much at all. I think it's safe to say the Easter Egger is a pullet.

They all look like cockerels except for the last one.
