    [​IMG][​IMG]I need help figuring out who's a rooster so I can separate them. The New Hampshire red and whites are about 9 weeks old and the silkies and black ones are 7 weeks. The black ones were supposed to be Barred Rock but I'm not so sure.[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as we are first time chick owners. Thank you!

    Your black bird front and center is a cockerel. I can't see the one behind well, but from the red wattles it could be also.

    The silkies are too young to tell.

    We'll need pics of the other birds.
