    Hi everyone! I have my first group of chickens and I really have no clue how to tell if they are roosters or hens. They were not sexed when I bought them. The coop is getting crowded and I need to sell my roosters as soon as possible! Please, let me know your opinions on gender for these 9 week old babies. I have put letters on their pictures hoping to make it easier. I sure hope they are mostly hens. This is my first time to post- so excited to see your thoughts!

    Maybe I have had too much coffee today and my eyes are loopy from it, but I see all cockerels, except that last one- that I have no idea ;) Hooefully someone else can weigh in!

    Agreed... Maybe one of the Barred Rocks. Its waddles are a little smaller, but not by much at all. I think it's safe to say the Easter Egger is a pullet.

    They all look like cockerels except for the last one.

    I also think they all look like boys except the last one.
