    Have 7 chicks, all hatched October 29 except for one that arrived the next morning. The first 4 are local generic farm eggs from a friend. The final 3 are BBS Ameraucanas from a BYC auction.

    Would love your help in determining the gender on these 4+ week old chicks.

    I'm leaning toward the first three as cockerels, the last a pullet, so far.

    Cockerel
    Pullet? (maybe, not sure but leaning towards girl)
    Cockerel
    Pullet

    Those are my guesses, but I would wait for someone more experienced.

    The only one that screams cockeral to me is #1.
    I second the last one being a pullet.

    Anyone venturing a guess on the BBS Ameraucanas?

    The local chicks - 1, 2 & 3 look to be cockerels. The fourth is female.

    all the other ones look like pullets to me.. Most definitely the last one for sure. Look at that eye makeup! [​IMG]
