    Please help identify the sex of these free range chicks. My sister in law bought the hen from tractor supply as a sex link but I think that's wrong. The rooster is a Dominique Chicks are about 8 weeks old [​IMG][​IMG]

    The 3 in the front are cockerels, and maybe the one next to the hose as well.

    The three in front are cockerels, and the one by the hose. The other 2 are pullets.

    No clue on breed - but our chickens came from tractor supply too - and were promised to be all females... we got 3/4ths roosters. Never again will I buy from tractor supply :p

    My sister in law ended up with a rooster from the red sex link bunch she got from TS so that's why I don't think hen is sex link. I'm thinking laced Wyandotte but that's just a guess [​IMG] so chicks are 1/2 dominque & 1/2 TS special [​IMG]

    I'm sorry, but I'm not too sure about the breeds.
