    Hi,
    I was wondering if anybody could assist me with trying to work out if these are male or female. I'm a newbie chicken owner and am really quite unsure on how to sex them.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks heaps,
    Tam

    They all look like hens to me, but I'm definately not an expert.

    Thanks for looking and taking the time to reply to me. I've been doing some reading on how to tell and most articles say to check the comb, the leg size and the saddle feathers and I got so confused re the saddle feathers. Some seem to have long saddle feathers but like my Rhode Island Red has a small comb but long feathers at the back so I got totally confused and thought I would ask for help [​IMG] It's all new to me so I really have no idea - haha.
    Thanks for your reply. I'm hoping they are girls. One of my Sussex is definitely a male (not pictured) so I was hoping to just have the one roo.
    Thanks again.
