    I have recently (end of August) got myself 4 6-8 weeks old unsexed chickens and 2 ducks to go with our new country house.
    I am new to sexing chickens and this is doing my heading. Can you please help? I know that the white sussex is a cockerel (or isn't he) but what about the others?

    So the birds are about 4 months old now? The only other one I'm getting any roo vibe from is the reddish bird. These two are females.

    That was my first impression too. Are you sure about the darker one of the two, as he or she has wide legs?[​IMG]
