    From what Ihave read here I think Pebbles and Bam Bam are both female, they are a week older than the picture and their feathers are pretty round, not sticking straight up. I am not sure about Lorp at all! Pretty fancy tail feathers for a girl?!

    Too early for me to tell on the polish.

    if I had to guess I'd say female and male

    And the legs on that Lorp.

    ROO!

    I was afraid Lorp was a he! He is pretty protective. Is it because of the size of the legs, or the coloring? I am new to all of this!
    He has been my favorite from day one, wasn't planning on keeping a roo. Hopefully it is my only one. I will have to take more pics of my others.
    2 black sex-link (female for sure)
    2 giant blue cochin
    2 dominique
    2 bantam cochin (one is a frizzle)
    2 silver laced wyandotte

    Is it bad to have a big roo with the bantams? Will he hurt them? Right now they all get along.

    That first chick is a little early to tell. The second, I am leaning toward pullet, but watch those wattles, it is old enough that you might see them turn red if they are a cockerel. The Aussie looks a bit like pullet from the head, but that isn't a good angle. If you can get some good face shots that would help. It is big enough that if it were a cockerel you would see the reddening on the face.
    Good luck.

    how old is the Australorp in the most recent pic. i breed SQ aussies and this look like a girl but age makes a big difference. at one point in time they all look alike for like a month and the the males go into a growth spirt
