    I tried the feather trick. There are two chicks that I think have more pointed feathers, but they all sorta look the same to me [​IMG] So any guesses on these girls/guys would be great. They are all around 10 weeks old.

    The one is my favorite (I know, a mom shouldn't have favorites!). She/he is very, very friendly, and loves to be held.

    I think this is a hen, but I'm so new to this that I question myself [​IMG]

    The coloring on this chick is so pretty in person

    Hoping this little one is a girl too

    We have two polish because they are so cute, here's the friendliest of the two:

    This one is developing quite a wattle already!

    And the last one, whom everyone guessed was a roo about a month or more ago:

    Thanks for any guesses!

    the third pic and the last pic look like roos, the rest look like pullets IMO [​IMG] I sure hope your Barred Rock is a pullet because of it being your favorite!

    I'm on the fence with the Barred Rock, but I'll go with what Tiki said - all pullets except for the last easter egger who is a pretty boy. [​IMG]

    The Barred Rock does look kinda light too to be a girl , it is hard when you dont have one of each sex to compare color with

    [​IMG] heres hopin' the best

    #1 male

    #2 I think you may be right...it looks like a girl to me

    #3 I have one that color, too. It is very pretty in person. It looks like it could be a boy, but I can't see the comb very well.

    #4 probably a girl

    #5 & 6 are girls. They have pom-pom heads. Boys will have mohawk looking top hats.

    #7 male

    Ah, I didn't know that about the pom pom heads. We lucked out then! They were bought as straight run. All of the others were suppose to be pullets (but we all know how that goes!) [​IMG]

    The 3rd and the last were the two who I *thought* had pointier feathers than the others.

    I would hate for my BR to be a roo. It's the sweetest thing. I thought roos were ornery, lol [​IMG] Will he get an attitude when he gets older? Here's another pic taken 2 weeks ago:
