    Hello everyone :)

    I am fairly new to having chickens and have recently hatched another 6.. I am trying to confirm sexes of them but unable to upload any pictures on here (saying I do not have permissions)?

    Thanks in advance!

    Go post another 3 times, it used to be 5 post or maybe as much as 10 before your cleared to load photos. It's to stop spam and unwanted adds.

    Sometimes I just copy and paste and that may work for you now instead of uploading.

    Ahh now it works :)

    They were born on 9/11/2015 - so almost 11 weeks and are a combination of Isa Brown, Welsummer and Langshan. Here are some photos :)


    The whole flock..

    3 look like cockerals to me for sure, colonel im not entirely sure, i'm not seeing definitive saddle feathers. But still seems to have a good size comb. Another couple months you'll know for sure! Lol

    I'm guessing Chow Mein, Honey, Sparrow = Cockerels
    Colonel possible pullet

    Love these "guessing games" but not for those that can't keep Roos:(

    Honey, Sparrow ad Colonel are pullets. I think folks are quick to guess because they read 11 weeks and see all those red combs. Prudence tells us to count the weeks and 9/11/15 to now is 19 weeks of age. Chow Mien is indeed a cockerel.
