    I know it's probably too early, but wanted to see if anyone can tell, we can't keep a rooster, my chickens are illegal sadly. One of them makes a weird noise instead of chirping.

    How old are they.....a couple weeks?
    4-5-6 weeks you'll know for sure from size and color of comb and wattles.

    Too young to sex. I would post some new photos when they're 6-8 weeks old.

    There pullets, pullets have wider black stripes, while roosters have whiter stripes
