    good evening everyone. Im hoping maybe someone could help a newbie out. These so called pullets are from TSC and are around 7+/- weeks old. I first started having doubts the other day when bumps started to appear where spurs grow on every single one of the chicks. In one of the pics it shows the bump on the white and black CW. So if anyone could help me determine the sex i would very much appreciate it Thanks in advance

    I think they are pullets. I have 4 Red Sex Link pullets that have those bumps, and a white pullet that does too. They are 6-7 weeks as well. I have a 2 week old rooster that has bigger bumps than that where his spurs will be.

    Pullets get those too. All of my pullets atm have lil "zits" where spurs would go. These defo look like hens to me, incoming egg feast [​IMG] Only one I'd even question slightly is the really spotted CFW but I'm not familiar with that breed. It's a thought solely based on the shape since the comb being so pale and yellow also signals a pullet to me... but again. No CFW's here so it could just be that specific piccy of them looking elongated

    Not sure about the white ones, but your RIRs look like Golden Comets to me. If I am right, they are pullets as they are sex linked.
