Hi everyone!

First timer here with my hens giving me little chicks! I believe my little babes are still too young to be able to determine the sex "for sure" however, I have ideas and was interested in knowing if I am right! Plus, it'll be fun/interesting to see, for sure.

Yes, it appears you have a fleet of baby cockerels. Sorry.

But on the chance your photos are not reproducing the color of those little combs accurately, pullets will have a very pale pink comb if it's even visible as a comb yet. Cockerels will have a more pronounced comb but the color will be trending more yellow-orange to pinkish orange. Also you should be seeing some tiny wattles emerging below the bottom beak. By age six weeks, those boy combs will be much redder than the pullets'. Then you can say goodbye to any doubts.

Oh goodness!!!

They were not intentional, but they're all such sweet boys, then! I was convinced I had at least 3, but was convinced 2 were at least pullets.
