    They're going to need to be a bit older first, with a bit of a clearer photo :)

    I think the two above maybe pullets. Fingers crossed. But this one has me puzzled [​IMG]x

    There's no way to tell at that age if they're not sex-links or hatchery sexed. Looks like the black *may* be an australorp. Where did you get them?

    Thank you for replying.
    my 5 year old daughter had a living egg project at school and picked ( no pun intended ) her daddy into bringing them home and raising them ourselves.
    I've had a few people, mention that sometimes sex can be determined by the wing feathers and how soon the tail feathers sprout.
    Any info will be gratefully received. Thanks :)
