    Hi, all!

    I’m a first timer and would love some help sexing these chicks. I live within city limits, so no roosters are allowed. I got them from Tractor Supply and they are supposed to all be female but of course that’s not guaranteed. They are supposed to be about 4 weeks old. The first two are supposed to be Barred Plymouth Rock and I was told that they weren’t sure of the breed of the last two chicks. So, any input on both sex and breed is appreciated! Thank you! :woot

    nothing screaming cockerel yet, but they're really too young to sex. You should probably wait and repost when their about 8 weeks old.

    1 & 2 are Barred Rock pullets. 3 & 4 look to be Black Australorps and pullets so far. @Frazzemrat1 is right, post updated pics in a few more weeks. Especially the Australorps.

    The third chick looks like a Wyandotte if you look at its head looks like a rose comb

    Looks like single comb and wrong leg color for Wyandotte. Appears to be 2 BPR and 2 Aussies to me.
