    Did you order them sexed? They can be quite easy to sex at this age. The chicks with solid yellow legs are your roosters and the ones with black shading running down the front of their yellow legs are your hens. Some folks can also sex by the size and shape of the white head dot. You're gonna love your BRs. Just ask "EMU". He's the dictator of the other 20 in the flock!
