    I'm sorry to say but I think the first 2 rir's are boys but the second two look like they could be pullets
    As for the chicks I'm not sure

    About your first 4 chicks.....Rhode Island Reds x Light Sussex should = sex link chicks. White cockerels and gold pullet chicks when hatched. But it looks like the first two look like boys and the other two look like girls. [​IMG]

    I agree, the first 2 look like boys and the second 2 are girls. As for the silkies? Good luck, it usually takes 5-8 months to figure out what those are! [​IMG]
