    I bought these chicks from TSC. Employee was sure they were all pullets but you know how that goes sometimes. I need to fix this issue soon and replace the roosters (if there are any). Any guesses would be great! I included what breed they are supposed to be as well, in case that helps at all. The Golden Laced Wyandotte and Australorp may be switched around, I really cannot tell which one is which, I'm a newbie.

    Do you know how old they are? Unfortunately, it's a little to early to sex them.

    They're much too young to know for sure.

    I believe they are all about three weeks old? I just want to be sure I can do it early enough that integrating new chicks will be easier.

    I believe Golden Comets are sex-links, so with the right feather pattern they are definitely female. I would just watch out for chicks that begin to get red/bigger crests early on or sometimes develop feathers slower than the others because that usually indicates a roo. Post pictures every week or two for more clarity, best of luck!

    way to soon to tell. You have to wait until they're 6-8 weeks old for positive identification. Sometimes you can tell earlier, but its not always a sure thing.
