    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.

    Thank you. That is what we were thinking. Will follow it up in a few weeks to show how they've all moved along :)
