    So this is only my 2nd mini clutch...and I feel like I'm slightly confused on what I'm seeing. The first clutch (only 3) were all obvious females with the well defined chipmunk striping and didn't look anything like these 5. I know the lighter two are obviously cockerels, but did I totally strike out on pullets on this clutch?

    3 and 5 are what I was expecting in terms of obvious cockerels, but 1, 2 and 4 seem to be in-between the pale cockerels and the pullets that I hatched out last time...

    I have only had spot-sexing chicks once, but I'm pretty sure 2 and 4 are female, not sure about 1, and 3 and 5 are probably male. Good luck
