    The bottom picture is a boy, due to its big red comb. The middle picture may be a boy because it has a comb which is starting to grow very early. And the top picture, I would say is a girl from that angle, I would need a picture of its back, showing its saddle feathers. :)

    Chicken boy, may I assist?

    That chick is way to young to tell. Many breeds of chicken have tiny combs at birth, especially Mediterranean breeds. You can't tell the sex of that chick just yet.

    That last picture is 100% rooster and the first one looks to be a pullet depending on age though.

    I can still give an approximate gender though, I'm not saying its a definite boy, I'm just saying it looks more like a boy than a girl due to its comb and yes, you may "assist" :)
     
  6. Chicken boy you did pretty good. I'll give you credit. Especially since these pics are quite limiting and I didn't give you all the info you asked for.

    1st pic is a Buff Laced Seabright about 4 months ok in that photo. ROOSTER
    2nd pic is a White Leghorn about 1.5 weeks old. PULLET. It is a Mediterranean breed and the comb development on a pullet is very large.
    3rd pic is Bubba. He was a Cornish X. Pic was at 12 weeks. ROOSTER.

    Wish ya the best. I hope others will give you a try as well.

    The silkie at the back is a cockerel, it has a big comb at 2 months, the one in front has no apparent comb and from what I can see, it has a feminine look :)
