    I kow it is a bit early to tell but I have this nagging feeling they're all boys. They are about 4 or 5 weeks. Let me know what you think.

    I can always tell the sex on mine around 2-3 weeks. Are these bantams or something? I would say Marigold & Daisy look like a girls to me. As for the others there aren't any waddles yet...but the 1st one has a very prominant comb IMO.
    Best of luck!

    Nope their not batams, the top two are buff Brahma/blue orps (from cyn) and Daisy is a Buff Orp and Marigold is a BO/SLW.

    For the Cynthia babies you really are going have to wait until they are older. Orpingtons mature slowly so it is really to early to tell. I have some Suede Caroline babies and they are about to be 8 weeks old, ad I have no idea on the sex of the chicks yet.

    Wow, Corey, those two have pea combs like their mom! Gosh, I'm not sure about the sex of those, but I'm leaning toward boy on the first one. The second one could go either way. The Buffs, I'm can't tell just yet.
    Adam, do your babies have single or pea combs or a weird combo-comb?

    Just never occurred to me to ask before, LOL. Now that I think about it, pea combs are dominant, I think. Corey, the black one does seem to be feathering out like a boy.

    The last 2 are really to early to tell bu they have the best chance to be pullets.
