    I also think that the Dark Cornish is a rooster. I can't tell what the other chicks are yet. I hope they are hens. Another way you can tell if the Dark Cornish is a rooster is to check the hackle feathers. If they are pointed is a rooster, if they are rounded it is a hen. Good Luck. Maddie

    Does it take longer for Cornishes to show their "rooish" side cause its four months fixing to be five and it doesn't crow,it acts like a hen, and the spurs haven't grown at all

    The Cornish is a male, definitely.


    The other two it would help if you'd clarify their breed, but they look like Easter Eggers to me, so it's too hard to say at this young. If on a bet, I'd say top girl bottom boy, telling by color so far, but that's a dangerous bet.

    Actually they are either a SLW mixed with a Red Sex-link or a BO mixed with a Red Sex-link......I know for certain of this because I only had them two hens(SLW & BO) and a red sex-link roo...My BO hatched em.....As for the Dark Cornish I really don't care about the sex I live in the boon docks nobody cares about hearing COCK-A-DOODLE -DOO in the Morning lol

    I had a GLW cross earlier this year and his comb was the same shape.
