    Hello, I recently hatched four little fellas. Two I know are cockerels (legbar autosexing and a marans chick that is a beast--obviously a roo). But these last two are barnyard mutts--an EE hen with a silkie-Speckled Sussex roo. I lean towards hoping the black one is a pullet, but I'd love the blue to be a pullet as well. They're just over 4 weeks old. Any guesses, or should I wait another week or so and send more photos?[​IMG]

    I'm grateful for any help.
    Thanks, MaryZoe

    They are pretty young yet, but I'm not seeing anything that currently looks like a rooster, another month or so you should know for sure.

    Thanks for the responses. I was hoping someone might notice something I had not!

    :) Happy chickening to all! MZ
