    Hi,
    I got 6 eggs after my hen turned broody and 5 hatched. One of them was so clearly a roo that he went to chicken heaven already.
    Can anyone help sexing the other 4? There is one light sussex that is def a pullet but all the others have small combs and wattles. Looks like I got 4 cockerels and 1 hen???


    Please help

    The white one is a roo I think. He has quite chunky legs as well.

    Smallish legs but a comb and small wattles?

    Bad picture of my only definite pullet, I always think it's a white dove in the garden. Next to it is the roo from the 1st picture.

    No idea what that one is...the brother went to chicken heaven, he was bigger on the legs and had a bigger comb and wattles too.

    The first one is a rooster, the second one is too I'm saying (tail feathers look like they're developing into streamers, as is the white bird). Fourth photo looks like a little Rhode Island Red rooster to me too.

    God bless,
    Daniel.

    Looks like 3 boys and 1 girl to me. I had the same this spring with one of my hen's clutch.

    Thanks for your replies. I thought the same. What bad luck, 5 out of 6 were boys!
