I have two nj black giant & one golden comet. They are about 4 weeks old. The jersey with the large tail has been kind of a butt today. I'm wondering if maybe its a rooster? Is it too early to tell? Do they all look like hens? Please enlighten me. My first time raising chicks and desperately hoping for ladies since that's what i paid for. Tia!! :)

Your Golden Comet is definitely a pullet (cockerels are white). I don't see anything screaming roosters with your Black Jersey Giants, so I'm thinking pullets at this point. However JGs are slow to mature, so I would re-post their pics again in about 3-4 weeks.

Phewwww you guys are the best! One giant is very slow gettin feathers. The bigger one kept coming up to me and pecking my arm then running around like a nut today. I didn't know if maybe the sudden attitude could indicate sex. I will post better photos in a week or two. She's getting her comb but as of right now it is yellow..

The two Black Sex Links are definitely pullets as male BSL chicks have a white spot on top of their black eggs. The Barred Rock may be a pullet, but I would post a good profile pic of it again in 2-3 weeks. By then it will be easier to sex.

Hi! I have a flock of 4. They have been making noises that resemble crowing and are trying to figure out if they are hens or roosters..... We thought they were all hens. Thanks!
