new chicken mama would love gender opinions please!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

We recently got 8 baby chicks (3 Buff orpington, 2 barred rock, 1 RIR, 1 silver laced wyandotte and 1 Ameraucana) all under 3 weeks old. I have been doing lots of reading and research and i know looks can be deceiving and that it can be really hard to tell for sure this young, but i would love to post pictures of my brood and have some of you awesome experienced chickeners give me your 2cents worth! I will be keeping them all regardless of gender, i am attached to them and luckily we can have them in my city and my neighbors are all for it!

 

First off is my favorite and my most special chicken, Fefe the barred rock. So friendly and lovable! I would love to know if my best girl might actually be my best boy! About 3 weeks old! Thank you!

Pics don't enlarge, and my eyes aren't the greatest at small details. But I'm not seeing any signs saying cockerel.

Looks like pullet to me. Cockerel that age should be lighter.

Here is Pickles on the left, slightly bigger with more of a splotch on top of the head, seems a bit lighter colored than Fefe (on the right)
I hope this picture will enlarge for you..I'm having a heck of a time getting pictures to work and I still have a few more chickens to post hmm.png
