    Hi! I just need some help sexing my chickens if possible. The first picture is of the fbcm I suspect is a Roo. [​IMG]
    Here is the other fbcm that I'm sure is a pullet to compare.[​IMG]
    Thanks for the help!

    Now here is my EE that I'm 99% sure is a Roo. [​IMG]
    It also has some red on the wings which I hear is another sign. [​IMG]
    Thank you for all the help!

    Hi :welcome
    Glad you could join the flock! You have some lovely birds there! I would say your guesses are correct but for more expert opinions I would suggest posting in the what breed/gender section of the forum. Here is the link https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this

    Wishing you the best of luck and hope you enjoy BYC :frow

    Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

    Could you get a body shot of the first bird? The second one is defiantly a hen. And the EE is 100% a rooster.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you.

    We'll need a side profile of the suspected Marans rooster to be sure. But, the Easter Egger is definitely a male.

    Your Easter Egger is a cockerel, but your FBCM looks like a pullet.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. Your Easter Egger is definitely a rooster, and both Marans look like hens. You should get some beautiful chocolate eggs from them. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
