    From what I see pictures 3-6 are roos. I can't view the bird properly on the last photo.

    Also, O think it may be the lighting in my room, but what colour oflegs do your chickens have?

    OKIE HEN....these are from your eggs! Your grandbabies are in Maine.... Out of 15 shipped eggs 12 hatched, gave away 2 to a friend and 1 had a bulging eye when it hatched and died shortly after. I am so happy with these babies.

    Thank you Okiehen. I have edited the photos with texts of what I think gender is. I'm looking for more input. Anyone have a guess?

    5 and 6 are certainly roosters. 3 and 4 are iffy. The rest look like pullets to me.

    All of them are pullets except pic #6, and quite possibly #5.
