    Hello, am new to BYC...and I just want to say how awesome this site is and how much I'm enjoying it. So much helpful information and lots of nice people here. :) We are chicken newbies and have nine 3-week olds (3 BR, 3 Welsummers, 3 Gold SL's) and two 1-week olds (SLW). Am pretty certain all the WS are pullets, and obviously the GSL's are, and the SLW are too young yet to even guess. But having a tough time with the BR's. I see a lot of sexing discussion on this breed so figured I'd take some pic's and hopefully get some feedback from all you experts! :) Just need some reassurance that I don't have any BR roosters in the making, lol. Again, I only have 3 BR, so the same bird(s) might be in multiple pic's. Thank you in advance for any input!

    this is the only one I'd be concerned about. I'm not sure which bird is which in each pic. Can you get a shot of this bird's legs?

    I'm not positive but I'm leaning toward male. Can you post again around 6 weeks so we can see how things are then?
