    4.5 week olds. I hatched them from egg. Breeds could be as follows:
    RIR X Barred Rock
    RIR X Buff Orpington
    RIR X Golden Comet
    RIR X Black Sex Link
    3rd little chicken hates being handled= bad picture. Six different chicks. Pretty positive the barred rock is a male. Thoughts? 20180320_085044.jpg 20180320_085111.jpg 20180320_085328.jpg 20180320_085153.jpg 20180320_085348.jpg 20180320_085445.jpg

    1 pic is definitely a cockerel. I’m on the fence about the last one. Post pictures when they are 8 weeks old. It will be easier to sex them then.

    The second and fourth are a little iffy. Small combs but definitely pink, but pink and not very pink.

    1, 2, 4, and 6 look like cockerels. But could you wait until they are six weeks?

    I'll wait a week or two to repost pictures so there's a better consensus. :)

    2 and 4 look like female black sex links, mine had a red comb early too, but she is definitely a hen.

    Definitely starting to agree on the Black sex link females. The last one and my two RIR mix looking ones I'm still on the fence about. The last has very very very little brown in the neck/chest and is always fighting with my barred rock. Still 3 unknown:
