Hi everybody,
I’m a chicken lover (animal lover in general) from Australia and I’ve just started raising my chicks for the first time from babies and was wondering if anyone could tell me how to sex my babies that are 5 weeks old as of tomorrow I think I may have 2 boys and 4 girls from some of what I’ve read but if anyone could tell by looking at my photos I would appreciate the advice :)

2 nd 3 look like boys, still pretty early to know for sure about 1 and 4. Keep us updated. Also welcome to BYC!

An update, charcoal was the cockadoodle doo culprit (one on the left of the second image) so were thinking the three black ones are the boys
