    Ok they are all 9.5 weeks no crowing yet ! One gonna crow anyday now Im sure. The last picture if the chicken I think may be a hen but I may be wrong, there are 2 others like her with out the red comb or waddles all the other fully white ones show red waddles and combs. Please help me if you can

    These are all guesses

    Solid white chick- Leghorn rooster pic 4- perching may be a pullet

    White chick with black on neck/tail- Delaware rooster

    Red chicks- Rhode Island Red pic 1- rooster pic 2-3 pullet

    The Leghorn males will probably start crowing first, as they develop very quickly.

    Good luck with your birds,
    Jamie

    The red one(s) look like pullets to me. The white one perched on the tub looks like a pullet. 1 see one white rooster and the white with black spots chick is a rooster. Or at least these are my guesses.

    Nice kids. :)

    Yes breakfast is better looking like I might have to start seperating them. One of my poor brown ones lost its tail feathers lastnight. When I let them out I had 3 crows. Now I guess I got to build a rooster camp and get me some more hens!
