    Hi there, I have four chicks at the moment of different breeds. One is a bit too young to try and sex, so I'll wait a bit longer for that one. The other three are about six weeks old. I have a Pekin Bantam, a light Brahma, and a light Sussex. If anyone would like to hazard a guess on my babies, I'd appreciate it :) I'm hoping for all pullets, especially my black Pekin, she's my favourite, she's just the sweetest chicken. Also, disregard my pink onesie, the chickens love sitting on it, it must be comfie for them too haha.

    I've always had a sneaking suspicion that my Sussex was male, and always believed my Pekin was female. Any ideas?

    I'm sorry, I think your Pekin looks like a boy. [​IMG] The rest look like pullets.

    Awww, I was afraid of that :( her comb has been yellow up until the last couple of days. Thanks for your opinion, does anyone else think the same?

    Turns out pekin was a male, and so was the Brahma :( in fact, so is the younger fourth member of my flock, a young Cochin, that I didn't post about. The Sussex was the only female! Sigh :(
