    Hi,

    I have 4 8 week old chicks. 3 Wheaten pekins and 1 porcelain silkie feathered x (this is the one I'm having most trouble sexing) I am pretty certain I have 2 hens (both wheaten pekins) and 1 rooster (Wheaten pekin) but the other not so sure, thinking maybe a roo? What do you think this one is and the others? Thank you smile :)

    Chicken 1 - not sure on sex

    [​IMG] I agree with you and think that 1 is a cockerel, 2 and 3 are pullets, and 4 is a cockerel.
