These were our first hatches. They will be 7 weeks Monday. The four darker ones are noticeably bigger than the three lighter colored ones; they were bigger when they hatched. Their mom is a red laced cornish (I think); our cornish roo is solid white. The man who gave them to us just called them "cornish" so we don't know if/what they might be crossed with. There are also other roos in the pen with them. Anyway, we're wondering if the chicks are girls or boys. Can anybody tell?

Thank you! The chicks are all pictured. The four in the picture 4 are pretty much the color shown... a dark reddish brown. They are the ones which are much bigger than the other 3. The white one in picture 1 hatched the same day as the 4 bigger dark ones. The ones in picture 2 & 3 hatched 2 days later. However, the white one is the same smaller size as the light red ones are. (There was a RIR rooster in the pen with the cornish pair, as well as a brown leghorn rooster. We assume the cornish roo is daddy, but is it possible that one of the others is?)

Here is a better shot of the white one (shown above in pic. 1)

Here you can get a better idea of the size difference in the smaller and larger chicks.
