    Hi, here are my 4.5 week old Rhode Island reds. Any guesses on gender?

    #3 on left #2 on the right

    #3 in front, #1 in back, #2 with it's head down

    I have my suspicions but this is my first batch of chicks so I'm anxious for your opinions! Thanks!

    I'm going with 1 being a cockerel, and the other 2 pullets! Repost in a couple of weeks with new pics. It will be easier to tell :)

    Thanks Basskids08, that is what I'm thinking as well, although #2 I'm not quite sure of.

    #1 is def the smallest, but I am thinking roo because if the slow feathering and s/he stands very upright and alert.
