    These are all 12 weeks old. I bought the eggs for my broody hen to hatch. The white one is suppose to be a Red-laced Wyandotte but I am not sure. The black one is a Black Orpington. Two are gold-laced Cochins and the remaining is a gold-laced Polish. Please help me sex them. I think the whitish one and one of the Cochins may be a rooster. Thanks!!!!

    If possible it'd help if you could get close ups of each chicken and of their combs.

    The white bird with reddish wings is male. Other than that, we'll need better pics to tell. My poor old eyes just won't see detail from these, sorry.

    The red/white bird looks like a cockerel to me, but the others appear to be pullets. Clear photos of each bird would help be sure of this, though.

    To me, only the red and white bird looks like a rooster. Better pictures would help.

    Looks almost like a blue Orpington pullet, but it could be black, the Cochins are pullets gold lace, and the white with red is male and the GL polish looks like a male except for its crest. So not to sure, but because of crest I'm saying pullet for now! :)
