    I got 4 dorking chicks 2 weeks ago & was told they were 4-6 wks old is there a way i can sex them at this age they all look the same. one of them is bigger than the rest & i guessed it was a roo but now i see it has a couple of patches of the salmon color coming throu on chest. so maybe its a pullet?lol also they have white on the tips of wings, does this mean they will be roos ? any help would be greatly appreciated.

    i think dorkings are supposed to be sexable. the roos should be darker, especailly in the chest. i am not sure i see any that i would call a roo for sure

    The adult Dorking Roos are black and white and look very different than the hens.

    I'm guessing all girls. There has only been 1 around our place ever, these look like her. Sadly we lost her. Seems like we have the worst luck with these fancier breeds of chickens though.
