    Was wondering if these babies I had were old enough to tell thier sex? I have 5 of them but I have trouble telling them apart!! So I attempted to take pictures of 5 different chickens but I do not know if I did, they may be repeats!! Thank you to whomever can help me [​IMG] I would say they are about 20 weeks, No one has crowed or layed [​IMG]

    sorry to say 1,2,3, and 5 look like roos to me but Im no expert. I have RIR and they look kind of similar and about where the smaller ones were at around 20 weeks.

    #3 and #5 look like they have saddle feathers, but they also look a lot alike. Maybe that's your repeat and you only have one roo?

    The only one that looks obviously rooish to me is #3, because the saddle feathers are pointy. The others have a few downward pointing saddle feathers, but they look pretty rounded....

    #4 is definitely a pullet.

    Love your darling goat!
