    Wonder what they are. Almost a month old IIRC and noticeably bigger than the other chicks hatched at the same time.

    They're a little dark, but they look like my barred plymouth rocks when they were about that age. Could be a mix.

    I don't know much about sexing, but cockerels are a lot lighter in color so I'd guess pullets.

    How can you tell? Is there something in the photos that's characteristic of cockerels? I ask because I'd love to get BRs again but probably from a feed store...

    Quote:The photos are hard to judge but I looked at the comb coloration at 4 weeks old and pinked up...A good photo should be a side shot of the full bird so we can see legs too:)
