They all around 3 weeks old
Because a lot of different chickens look similar to this at that age, it is too soon to tell.
Where did you get them and what did they seller claim?
They look like Amber Sex-links. IF they are it looks like you have 3 pullets and 3 cockerals.
They came from Ideal I ordered 6 chicks 2 were sex links. They included males for warmth. Im still trying to figure out which are my 2 pullets and which are males for warmth
It's likely that the body warmers are the whitish birds. But caution. To repeat, so many mixes and hatchery types look so similar to this at this point.
1,3,4 look to be production reds, or what hatcheries call Rhode Island Reds (but aren't). There is quite a bit of reddish streaking in the white birds that guessing, at this point, is to throw caution to the wind.
Here's the thing? At 6 weeks? You know for virtual certain. The cockerels will sprout little red wattles and pink, bright combs while the pullets will show nothing but dull, yellowish combs. You will know very, very soon.
See this cockerel among the pullets? You'll se this and you'll know for sure.
Wow, it would have been nice if they'd sent black sex link males so it would be obvious!
The two male SLs are the last two. They will come out mostly white when they feather, with flecks of red occasionally.
Your other birds look like production reds, which often come gender IDed.
It would be nice if they gave a clear visual to the pullets and cockerels.
They look like my production reds on the left side. My new batch is now 4 weeks old. Look similar
I had a question on the red sex link I have a little over a week old baby chicks 4 of them are showing black feathers at the tips could those be roosters or is it possible they are hens?
