Please may I have some opinions on the following six. We think we have at least 2 roos and poss a 3rd, but this is the first time we've adopted chicks to raise.

All but the SL Wyandotte are approx 5 weeks old (the Wyandotte is 6 weeks old).

Thank you in advance :)



Here we have two light sussex (one male, one female, we're guessing), a RIR (female?) and a little pekin who we guess is a poss roo, too).



Here is the little black (mottled?) pekin and the SL Wyandotte - think they may both be roos.






We think the RIR and lavender pekin are both female?

Thanks a lot for your opinions.

SLW is a cockerel
Black Pekin is a cockerel
Light Sussex - the one with the big red comb is a cockerel, other looks like a pullet
Lavender Pekin - pretty little pullet
RIR - pullet

Now they are young, so the girls could change, but for now the above is what I think. You might want to post pictures in a couple weeks to confirm the pullets.
