At 4 months old, we should be able to help you tell male from female. If you start a thread in the "What breed or gender section with good profile pics of your birds, giving the breed and age, we'll help you decide who stays and who gets the axe.

This is Castro, she's about 9 weeks & supposed to be a Ameraucana Cochin mix. These are our first chick's so I'm new to everything...

 

Any suggestions how to verify she is in fact a hen yet?

The black one in the pic is a baby of an Ameracauna Roo (multi colored) and white cochin hen. Just hatched last night. He is black on his back and yellow on belly and chin. Tips of wings are yellow and a tiny bit around his face is yellow. His mom is 100% white so not sure where black comes from lol can't wait to see fully grown.
