Both of our Australorps went broody at the beginning of June so we decided to put some fertilized eggs (EE mom and Brahma Dad) under one of them. The chicks are 4 weeks old and I am thinking we have 3 pullets and one roo. I think the roo is the white chick with speckles on its body and head. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Thank you for your help. I will post updated pictures in a few weeks and hopefully it will be more obvious at that point.

Here are updated pictures of the chicks at 9.5 weeks. I definitely think the first one is a cockerel and the "twins" are pullets. The pure white one I think is a pullet, but the downward curl of the tail feathers have me questioning myself. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you!

Thanks for the tag! Circled are the pullets I see. The tail on the white one is quite normal, chicks tend to havw odd tails that do not affect gender. A comb shot of the white bird may help, but from what I see, it appears female.

Do you have updated pictures? Looks like you only have one cockerel.
