Alrighty! I have nine lovely mutt chicks to be three weeks old on wednesday. Would anybody be willing to bear with me and see if they could sex any of them. Two I am 90% certain are roos. But I've never had chickens before. So I'm hoping to find some help here. Thanks!

Number 4 and 8 look like cockerels. Number 5, 6, 7 look like pullets to me. Not sure about the others and of course its guesswork at this age, but the growing combs are the easiest clue.

I know they're a little young. Four and eoght were my guesses. I was just seeing if someone with a little more experience had a better odea than I did.
Drumstick Diva, I've had my cat for a few years and he has absolutely no prey drive. My other cat was tossed outside while I took pictures. But if the birds hop out of the brooder while I have the lid off they walk all over him. His favorite were the ducks I hatched last spring, they'd sit by him and let him bathe them. He's like a surrogate pappa cat.
