    These chicks are about 8 weeks old. Can anyone tell what gender they are?[​IMG]

    The first two are likely pullets. However, the red comb and wattles of the third bird make me say cockerel.

    thanks so much that was kinda what I was thinking. I got the mother and her ten chicks when they were a week old and I am not sure what breed they are. Someone told me that they are black bantams but she also said that all ten chicks were roos. she has thirteen hens but Im not sure how much she knows about other breeds. All hers are Rhode Island Reds.

    What I can see they just look like barnyard mix. 2 pullets, one cockerel.
