    My TSC chicks are now about 3 weeks old and one of them is def starting to look roosterish and I am hoping that some of you all who are more experienced in chickens than I am (aka almost everyone [​IMG] ) would be willing to give me a few guesses at whether I have hens or roos, or if it is too early to tell. I also am just guessing on breeds so any guesses as to breeds are also greatly appreciated !!! Here are the pics!

    Rhode Island Red or Production Red? I think this one is a rooster

    I think this one is a Black Jersey Giant, yellow on the bottom of its feet and a rather heavy, large chick. No clue on male or female tho

    Got this one out of the bantam bin, has muffs and greenish legs so I am assuming that it is an EE bantam, thinking maybe female?

    Think this is a mille fleur d'uccle chick, I know it is hard to photograph, hardly sits still !! Every time it chirps its tail moves! No clue on sex tho

    At first I thought this bantam might have been a silver seabright but it is getting in what appears to me to be a single comb. It is def silver laced, any guesses on breed and/or sex are appreciated here !!!

    This is Kowalski, one of the few that has a name. I have no clue what this chick is and have posted pics a few times and haven't gotten any guesses as to it's possible breed. This is another chick that sex and/or breed guesses are greatly appreciated!!! Think he has a rosecomb?

    agree with them but it could be early to tell about that bantam though

    Well . . . .that means possibly 4 roosters and then that would bring my pullet count to 14 . . . .guess that means either rehome a few roosters or get a few more hens . . . . *grin*

    I guess all pullets except #1, and possible #2. The one with the down-pointy wings is a Sebright. (sp)

    Horsefeathers, that is more what I thought originally when I wasposting the pics but I am still so new to the chicken world I wasn't sure how accurate my guesses were. I went to coop today to get more food and some shavings and grabbed a couple more chicks [​IMG] I'm addicted, yes . . .it is true. They had a golden seabright looking chick so I figured it would be a shame not to have one of each [​IMG] and then they only had one feather footed baby left and it was rather loud so I figured it could go play with my loud d'uccle chick! Guess we will find out what I have for sure when they start to lay eggs or crow !!!!
