Hello so I hatched some cream leg bars. The males are all very light colored with no patterns and the females are all distinctively darker.
these are all kinda in between! Please help

Cream Legbars are easy. Do you see a little but distinct spot on their heads? Spots indicate males. Your angle makes it a little difficult to see. It's the tops off their heads you're inspecting.

Meanwhile, congrats! CLs are lovely chickens with beautiful eggs.

Unfortunately it isn’t always so obvious! Depends on the quality of the auto sexing in that particular line that you have. Ideally there should be a clear yellow spot on the top of the heads of the males and a very clear chipmunk stripe on the females but often these distinctions are blurred. You may have to wait until they start feathering in to be sure as the males will feather in more barred than the females.😊

From what I have read the “eyeliner“ is the best clue when you are not sure.
Females will have very clear eyeliner whereas the males will be lighter and often broken.
