    My six chicks are now nearly 21 weeks im still unsure of the gender of about three of them! We have two away to a friend as they are definitely cockerels and she was happy to have them so now I have four at home. Three or two out of the four LOOK like cockerels but I read that they start crowing when the start looking like cockerels and they starting looking like cockerels about five weeks ago... also the two appenzellers that I gave away starts crowing at about 9 weeks I think so quite a lot earlier and they did not look like roosters then..

    The first one I personally think is a cockerel because of the feathers and just the face but I'm not sure - also I'm not sure what breed he is as he's meant to be a RIR but he/she looks like more of a mix

    The next one is supposedly a welsummer but I am very unsure of the gender as he/she has quite a small comb in comparison to the others and smaller feet although has the same side feathers so... :idunno

    And the last one I think is definitely a girl and I think is a brahma but not sure

    The last\white one looks like a Light Brahma hen. Only reason I know is I have one that looks just like her.

    The Light Brahma is a pullet. The rest are cockerels.

    Thanks for the replies the first one has started crowing so definitely boy but still not sure about others. Found a shellless egg this morning so porsibbly layed by the light brahma? But could have been one of the others
