    Hi all,
    I've been combing through these pages trying to get clues on the genders of my 5 BLRW who are now 16 weeks old. This breed seems challenging to identify. I'm new to chickens but my (nasty, loud) Leghorn cross was obvious at about a month old as was my BO pullet.
    I have a sinking feeling that at least 4 are cockerels and perhaps 1 a pullet. I'm new to chickens but these 5 are just the sweetest (right now) they follow me all around when they're not nestled in the shade or gorging on all our japanese beetles.
    I'm happy to get more pics if these don't give enough of a view. The four I suspect are roos look exactly like the last two pics with variations on the coloring.
    Any input on these friends would be a help.
    Thanks!

    1st pic is a pullet, but the rest look like roosters. [​IMG]

    I agree with the other posters, and I have to say they are just beautiful! [​IMG]

    Thank you everyone!
    Don't know if I'll be able to part with these roos. [​IMG]
    Hope they'll stay kind and that I can add a good number of BLRW hens to the flock next season.
    Now I can get down to naming the darlings.
