    I have 6 barred rocks who I believe are 5 weeks old, I think I have an idea what sex some of them are, but I keep second guessing myself, So I figured I would come on here and ask the experts. [​IMG]

    That would be wonderful! There is two of them that I keep going back and forth about its number 2 and 3, When they go outside they look so much lighter than the other 4 and they have longer necks.

    Looks to be all pullets, but better full body shots would give us all a better clue.
