    There are 27 pictures. Really sorry about how many but if you can give me the number down on any of them what it is and gender it would be much appreciated.

    All my opinion. Some are pretty likely to be males.

    Thank you. How long have you been raising chickens? I have only had them 3 months and some I thought were boys are but I did think the cornish X was a girl. I tried looking at their feet and their heads and still lost most of the time.

    Thanks for your feedback. I am hoping to get 5 replies and circle the matching ones so I know, lol. Spring chicken catalogs are out and I wanted to order but I have to reduce my males first.

    I got my first chickens in the middle of April, 5 white leghorns. Found out I had a cockerel at 5 weeks of age. We then got 3 chicks in late June, 2 cochin pullets and an EE pullet. Pretty much the whole time I felt in my gut that one of the cochins was gonna be a boy based on behavior, size, and slow feathering and eventually he crowed.

    I read somewhere they crow as early as now and then I hear they can lay eggs anytime after 16 weeks. The internet has tons of different answers. I googled imaged the ages for weeks now.

    I have had a cockerel crow as early as 3 weeks. Every chicken is different. When they start laying depends on breed and also the strain they from (hatchery, breeder)

    I pretty much agree with Studio - you have a heck of a lot of cockerels and just a few pullets. Sorry.
