    Hi I've visited this site often over the last year but this is my first time posting. My husband and I got to sexed chicks last year. This year our order got l 20170616_154756.jpg 20170616_154756.jpg 20170616_154639.jpg 20170616_154710.jpg 20170616_154725.jpg ost and we ended up with 4 straight run chicks. I think at least 3 are cockerels (due to the long tail feathers) but hoping for some help with confirmation. The lady who raises the chicks offered to trade us some pullets if we ended up with an over load of roosters. And help would be greatly appreciated, we are still very new to this! I'll try to get better photos today, they are not very cooperative
    Thanks!

    The black one looks to be the only cockerel.

    How old are they? The black one is definitely a cockerel.

    Not sure, I'll check my emails and get back to you. They are Easter Eggers, I think I have the exact cross in my emails as well. The black one is pretty grumpy so that makes sense!

    We've had them for 2 months and we think they were just under a month when we picked them up. "Ameraucanas and Olive Eggers, which are a cross between Ameraucana and Welsummer chickens."

    Thanks everyone, I'll try to get post some better photos today, just to be sure. The only one we were pretty certain was a pullet is the white one perched on the nesting box, so this has been helpful!
