    There really isn't a good way to tell, will be 100% sure on month 3 when they crow or don't crow. If their comb is bigger and their tails a bigger, those are good signs it is a rooster

    Are all of these chicks mixes? I've never seen barred chicks with brown heads.

    To young to say for sure but a few are looking a little suspicious. Cockerels get bigger, redder combs sooner then pullets.

    Definitely not Orpingtons. At least 3 are cockerels.
