Help please! sexing 8 chicks ( 8 weeks )

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by Below frigid, Mar 12, 2018.

  1. I have 8 Oliver Egger chicks. I have an idea of what most are but am only sure about the sex of 4. I could still be wrong as I am still a novice when it comes to chickens. Here is a couple of group photos of 7 and a photo of the 1 that did not make the group shot. If you could start with the one in the back left then go down the line. Many thanks for the help!

    I only see 1 pullet, the black one, in the first photo. But to be sure, you need to take a photo of each individual bird standing, from the side.

    Sorry, but that would be a boy at 8 weeks old. 8 week old pullets don't have any red in their combs and not that much wattle development.
     
  6. Yeah, so I have two pullets because there are two of those that are identical. The two I was sure of. A lot of work for 25% being pullets. I was planning on keeping two cockerels. So I have 4 Olive Egger cockerels for adoption, South Monterey County, California 93426 if anyone is interested.
