Hi guys - I have a few barnyard mix and a couple birds from a feed supply that I would like to get some insight on. The older ones I think are pretty obvious - just looking for some reassurance, the other three, I don't really know.


#1; ~5-6wks old barnyard mix, possible frizzle dad and barred rock mom - hoping pullet but the red scares me

#2 ~5-6wks old polish from feed store - thinking pullet due to the super white face

#6 ~10wks old barnyard mix possibly blue copper maran - came from a chocolate egg - thinking pullet

#7 ~10wks old barnyard mix possibly copper maran X barred rock - thinking pullet

#8&9 ~10wks old barnyard mix possible copper maran X barred rock - from chocolate eggs - pretty sure these guys are cockerels, sharing to compare features with #6&7 as they came from the same clutch of eggs

The last there are females, minus the 10 week old boys.
Dominique looking bird is male. (My avatar is a Dominique pullet of mine @ 13 weeks.)
Polish....leaning male.
CCLB is male.
Olive egger is male. He’s gonna be absolutely gorgeous, tho.
And then the red, choc/black, and barred are girls.
Then the last two are male.
This.

Thanks for typing it out, Odd. 🤣

I agree.

Also OP, CCL are an auto sexing breed. Meaning you can tell gender at hatch. Females will have a very obvious "chipmunk" stripe. While boys will have a light spot on the head.

What makes you say that #4 is a cockerel? Trying to learn how to better sex them myself. Is it the redness around the eye, ear, and wattle? Because even #5 has some red in the comb - but definitely doesn't have those same red eye/ear/wattle.

Hopefully the polish ends up as a pullet! Are they harder to sex? Do I have to wait until 12wks for saddle/hackle with this one?
