We got 11 Birds I have a hunch on a few of them but have no clue which ones are boys and girls. I do know that my BCM is approximately 7 weeks old. I have no idea if this is a girl or a boy.
    Feel free to give me feedback on the other chicks too! Sorry if i reposted same picture. New on this site too

    How can you tell? I don't see any saddle feathers coming in that are copper colored. Again I'm so new at this I was really hoping Jackie was a Jackie O not a Jackie Chan

    I can tell by the comb and wattle development. Girls won't even get red combs until they are almost ready to lay.

    Well that's kind of a bummer "Jackie" was the only chick I paid 8 bucks for really hoping for a girl. I guess it's good news there still more chick days at the feed store and I have the hatcheries phone number that's only an hour away. I'm going to start a new feed with pictures of the other girls to see if anyone has guesses on my other birds. Even though we knew some of them were supposed to be pullets it would be nice to know for sure because we know there's margin of error

    The color isn't what your looking for with the saddle feathers, the shape is. Like below... Additionally, that one has a huge comb for a 7 week old. Saddle Feathers.jpg

    Cockerel.
    Note: cockerels don't develop saddle feathers until 12 weeks.
