    These are some of the chicks I hatched about 10 weeks ago. Could you please help me figure out what they are? Are they a roo or hen. I know most are just mutts so I just want help with sex please.

    Thanks again

    My guess is that the first one is a rooster and the second is a hen!!! Pretty no matter what sex!!!!

    The first one looks like a roo, maybe a cochin cross. The second looks like a hen, EE or americauna.

    Well number one is a boy or a girl, im not sure..im guessing a girl becuase bye that age if it was a boy he would start crowing...and also, number two is a girl.
    (some girls have big wattles and combs just like roos...)
