Hey all, I have 8 chicks that are just over 5 weeks old. 3 blue red Wyandottes, 4 Polish mixes (I don't think they are pure polish but not idea what they were mixed with). And 1 Sussex. I would like some help identifying the genders, I realise it's probably a bit too early to tell for sure but there's a few I'm pretty confident are roos. I would like someone else's opinion on it though. I will post some updated photos in the coming weeks, assuming I remember.

Thanks in advance.

Oh my! A silkied polish! Where did you get them from? I think that's a pullet to but I could be wrong.
Pullet
Looks like another pullet again!
This one also looks like a pulley, although it does have slightly bigger wattles than the rest.

Thanks for the reply.

I live in Australia, I got the polish eggs interstate on gumtree. I didn't realise there was going to be any silkies in the batch. I wonder if #7 has some silkie in it too, as it has an extra toe.

I was thinking 1,3,4,5 and 8 were roosters from the comb/wattles. They seem a bit redder/larger in general. However I'm really not confident in my guesses (hence the thread lol). I guess in a few more weeks it should be more apparent.

I am now thinking 1,3,4, maybe 5 are roosters. Let me know what you guys think. Cheers
