    These chicks are almost 16 weeks, but the pics are when they were 12 weeks. I hatched 24 total and kept the 5 I THOUGHT would be girls. Now I am not sure.

    Chick #1 Americana x Australorp

    They both look like pullets to me. But I'm not great at this!

    I tried to avoid having them held, but they wouldn't cooperate. The handsome helper is my youngest DS.

    Thanks!

    Looks like all pullets to me. I'd think any roosters would have much larger/redder combs by now.
