    I ordered 15 chicks from Murray McMurray a couple of months ago (plus one mystery chick), and after death, predation, and rehoming, I am left with 11. Can anyone help determine their genders for me? Other than these 11, I know I had two boys (one which was taken by a hawk, one which I re-homed), and there is one boy that I am 100% sure about between his crowing and hackle feathers. So, that is already a 20% mistake on the Hatchery's part, and I really hope I do not have any more. They were hatched July 22nd, and are 10.5 weeks old.
    p.s- this was a quick photoshoot, let me know if more pictures are needed.

    Thanks for the help! Name suggestions for the Sussexes that fit into the above theme would be appreciated as well!

    The chicken behind Ursula? Did you need a guess on him?

    They all look like pullets to me.

    Thanks so much!

    Nope, he has hackle feathers and he crowed a few days ago, I am pretty sure about his gender! :) Nice catch though!

    Thanks!

    Thanks!
