    3) Pullet, was born with the chipmunk stripe so definatly a pullet right?

    4) Must be a roo? the size of that comb, he is the same age as the other chicks!!

    5) Pullet?? (she has blue ears, how cute [​IMG])

    6) Unsure, maybe a roo but not 100% sure.

    I think that 4 and 6 are your roos. Looks like you have some silkie crosses there, between the blue earlobes and black skin... [​IMG]

    I'm thinking that 4. and 6. are cockerels( roosters) but I'm not sure. I think the rest are hens.. [​IMG] Cockerels have shorter wing feathers that are almost equal and pullets have unequal,longer wings. Hope that helps! [​IMG]

    I think they might be too old now for the wing feather length to give you a for sure answer though... [​IMG]

    Thanks, thats not bad 5/7 pullets [​IMG].... after most of my young chickens turned into roo's earlier this year.
    I will see about the wing lenghth with some chicks next year, might be able to help me sexing them when they are a bit younger.
