    Ok here we go. I have 8, Buff Orpington X EE (Roo) chicks. Well actually one chick could be from my cochin hen because she has a few feathers on the legs. [​IMG] They are about 4 weeks old and I am thinking that I have 5 roos and 3 hens [​IMG] Hoping you guys can help me out on gender. Pretty Please. Please excuse the not so great pics but my camera battery was going dead and those chicks dont like to stay still.

    #1 These are two of the ones that look very roo like. Left to Right numbering Chick #1 Chick#2

    #2 Left to Right Chick #3 Chick #4 (ignore the others)
    [​IMG]

    #3 Chick #5 Chick #6 (ignore the blurry one)
    [​IMG]

    #4 Chick 7

    Chicks 3 and 5 look like pullets to me. I would lean towards all the others being roosters, but chick 7 could be female, it's hard to tell.

    I'm sure you won't have trouble finding homes for the roosters if you can't keep them all, they look like they'll grow into handsome chickens! [​IMG]

    Yeah #7 Is very confusing to me because of the lack of wattles, and all the Brown ones seem to mature faster than the white/speckled ones. [​IMG]
