    You can tell the sex at hatch, like in the link below.

    This link is good for Barred Rocks, Cuckoo Marans and Dominiques and has very good photos


    Here is a good photo to show differences between male (lighter) and female (darker) Barred Rocks--these were 6 weeks old at the time.

    So, according to the link, beak color is also an indicator?
    I'd never heard that before...
    Anyone else find this to be a useful indicator?

    the BR that you got two weeks ago that is older than your other chicks looks like a roo, the black chick with the head tuft looks like a mixed breed pullet, the blue americauna also looks like a pullet to me. Cute birds!

    the one with the head tuft looks like a discolored golden laced polish. Maybe?
