    Right now I see "Pink" and "Boy" as roos.

    The rest look like pullets with a couple that have larger combs that I would watch as they could be roos as well...too early for me to tell.

    I always wait until I am positively certain as I've been fooled by early development (and gave away good laying hens that way)!

    My daughter and I wing sexed them when they were day olds and we were sure that we had 4 boys and 4 girls or possible 5 girls. We thought ( rookies ) we would be able to tell them apart :/

    Lulu and Orange are the only ones I'm comfortable in thinking are pullets. As for the rest, there are a few boys and maybe early developing girls, but you may as well prepare for the worst now (ie lots of boys) then you will be pleasantly surprised if more of them turn out to be girls. Well that's my logic these days lol! Is wing sexing at day old a reliable method in this breed?
