    We're the proud owners of four 16-week-old chicks and new to the chicken business. We're starting to wonder if we have 4 girls or if there's a rooster amongst our flock. Do you have any idea from these pics?

    Looks like you've lucked out and have 4 hens. Eggs for everyone![​IMG]

    All hens. Probably two white leghorns, one red sex-link, and one easter egger. So, white, brown and green eggs!

    Adding--their combs will all get redder and larger as they get closer to laying eggs. Don't panic, it's just a maturity thing. They're hens.

    Especially the white leghorns (x). Yes, their combs will get big, and red, but that doensn't mean their roos!

    Thanks for the input. Hopefully we'll know for sure in 4 to 8 weeks time when they start laying or not. I'll update the post then and let you know what the final outcome was.
