    I bought all my chicks as straight run - not from a hatchery, but the parent stock was from McMurray if that makes any difference. EE #1 [​IMG] EE #2 [​IMG] I'm thinking boy on the above one... EE #3 [​IMG] Here's a second picture of #3 [​IMG] How about my 4 1/2 week old mixes? #1 [​IMG] #2 [​IMG] #3 [​IMG] This one I thought was a roo from it's first day. Just the stance/personality is so bossy... Any guessers on my Houdans? [​IMG] I think one is a boy (closest to mom) and the two others are girls :fl I do know it's early. It's fun to guess though :p I do have two other white EE's, but the pictures are not resent enough. Will post them later.

    It's pretty early, but I'd say EE #1 is a pullet, EE #2 is a cockerel, EE #3 could go either way, but I'll say cockerel.

    For your mixes #3 is most definitely a cockerel. The other 2 look like pullets.

    I have no experience with Houdans. A total guess would be 2 girls and a boy.

    Thanks :) I'd have thought # 3 was pullet and #1 would go either way. Only reason I guess that was because #3 is very shy and withdrawn like young pullets, while #1 is outgoing. I totally agree with the middle. He is already starting to have red come in on his wings.

    That was my thought too with the mixes :D I was really hoping the middle one was a pullet, as she is my favourite, but I'd keep that one either way. I'm sure if she turns out to be a he, he will resent me for calling him Bonnie :lau

    I'll post again in a week. Should it be more clear by 4 1/2 or 5 weeks old?

    All three are girls (Pullets)
    Mixes:
    #1 and #2 are pullets
    #3 is a boy.
    Houdans:
    Sorry not good at sexing the crested breeds except for Buff Laced Polish.

    Either that or a partridge rock.

    She is my beautiful Partridge Cochin :love Her eggs did not hatch, so she adopted the Houdans when they were two weeks old. She does not like the others. :/ [​IMG]
