Help Sexing my first flock!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

We just got our first flock and are in love! Only problem is that we can't keep roosters. I want to try to sex them before I get too attached. Here's some pics:

5-6 week old buff Orpington


Another similar:


Ameraucana or Easter egger 5 week old


Same but 1-2 weeks older for the next two

If I had to guess, I'd say that #1 and #3 are roos.

Jesus Christ is my pilot.

My husband of 41 years is my best friend and co-pilot.

Enjoying my gardens.  My flock are my garden helpers.

Breeding a winter hearty flock with small combs and colored eggs.

Favorite breeds:  Dominique and EE.  Hatching addict.
