Hi, these are my wyndotte cross Sussex chickens. I believe they are cockerels but i'm not sure. Please can someone identify whether they are female or male and how can you tell? They are approx 26/28 weeks. One is definitely crowing (all white one). Thank you.

Males 100% chickens don’t get that big that quick
I think you mean female as they’re all chickens considering chicken is the species not a gender….

Also the proper terms are cockerel and pullet for birds under a year old (which these are) or rooster and hen for birds over a year old. Also some females can get pretty big too. They’re 6 months old which is really not that young.

But yeah. They are cockerels for sure. And chickens. Cause chicken is a species. They are both.
