    Hi! Just wondering if the chicken experts here can give me an idea of gender. Al chicks are 5 weeks old. All tho the two blrw were larger and had more feathers thinking a week older, as we picked up chicks rather than having them shipped. Thanks for any help!

    This is the least feathered I have, very small tail feathers compared to the others

    This is one of the blrw, shes hand full. First out of the crate, always instigating the other birds

    the other blrw, shes just a lover baby!

    this one is the other EE and she doesn't stop always on the run..non stop trouble with a T

    If its too early to tell, I'll have to force my self to stop thinking about it lol. They were ordered as all pullets, but I know my luck! If they are cockerls all is still good as I have a cpl acres,

    Thanks!

    To me, only the first one looks like a cockerel.
