4-5 week old mix breed chicks - gender questions?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

We have 6 chicks thanks to a broody hen. They are mix breed with the father definitely being "Stormy" and the Easter Egger is the mom of 3 and ISA brown for the other 3. All the chicks hatched within 5 days of each other, starting on April 27  and I have noted if they were a little behind the others.

 

Stormy is the dad for all the chicks!

 

 

Chick #1 Yellow (Very obviously a Roo)

Chick #2 Dalmatian (thinking Roo)

Chick #3. Black  (thinking Pullet)

Chick #4. Light Brown mix (part EE) (for sure a Roo)

Chick #5. Dark Brown mix (part EE) about 3 days behind the eldest (thinking Roo)

Chick #6 Grey (part EE) - about 5 days behind the eldest (thinking pullet).

#6 (and the bum of #5)

 

Are we on the right track in terms of gender guesses? 

 

Thanks, 

Erin

I think your guesses are correct, there always seems to be more roosters than pullets.
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.

You should start your own thread and post some photos of them and folks can help you figure it out.

Thank you! #2 was the one I have been flipping back and forth on as compared to the rest, the comb is so small.
