    Hi! New chicken lady and to the site. Such great info! Looking for opinions on gender for my 6 chooks, 2 EE, 2 ameraucana, 2 BLRWs. Any thoughts would be appreciated as I'm excited to learn the tricks and tips. Thanks!
    In order of photo:

    It's a little early. I can make guesses, but understand that at this age things can still change.

    1. Lean cockerel because of that pinkish comb.
    2. Lean pullet. (red and blue bird)
    3. Lean pullet, but it has mighty thick legs.
    4. Lean cockerel because of patchy color.
    5. Definite pullet.

    Thanks for the input! Your guesses are similar to mine. The two lavender Ameraucanas are very similar looking. I hope they're not both roos.
    As for 'lean' do you think they're too skinny?

    1 is a Cockerel.
    Rest look like pullets.

    It just means I lean that way as opposed to having definite answers.

    Biscuit, Mole, and General Tso are who I'm suspicious of being cockerels. But I think they need more time to be certain too.

    Here's the usual suspects with an eight and a half week update. Any further thoughts on gender?

    I'm pretty sure pic 2 is a roo, as well as pic 3 Hoping pics 1, 5 (who is on right in pic 4) are pullets.
