    The barred rock crosses look like boys to me. The others I couldn't make gender out yet. The turkeys may be a long while before you can tell. All are adorable, though! [​IMG]

    I think you have four boys in that brooder. The two barred birds are obvious roosters. The other two look like boys. The Gold Laced Wyandotte has a large comb, and very thick legs. As for the Silkie it stands like a boy.

    It's funny you called it a gold laced wyandotte. It's supposed to be a blue laced red....and I also think it looks gold laced. [​IMG]



    So, I have a hunch the barred X's are boys cause they are kinda rowdy, and my roo (their dad) tried to kill them when I held them up to his run. Just wondering what looks roo about them to you all? Hard to see in the pics but their combs are turning pink. So is the wyandotte's.
