    Please help me sex these BR chicks. I think 2 pullets and two cockerels. What do you think?

    They are a little too young right now, but so far they all look to be pullets! :D

    Looks like 2 of each.

    But, in another week or two, the difference will be obvious. The males will have bright, white bars, while the females will look rather black and the barring will be quite spotty. The males are pretty quick to sport their red combs and wattles, while the females will have no wattles and yellow combs. The difference is obvious at 6 weeks.

    True bred, Reese line Barred Rocks at 11 weeks.


    Hatchery stock at 5 to 6 weeks
