    Hi i am a proud owner of 10 wonderful chickens I have 3 RIR's That are 12 to 13 weeks old, 2 BR's that are 12 to 13 weeks old, 3 Amerciaunas that are 10 to 11 weeks old and 2 BSL/Black Stars that are 10 to 11 weeks old . I would appreciate any help I can get I just want to make sure i do not have 2 Roo's.











  2. JUST guessing, I'm no expert... just labeling pics 1-11

    1 Kinda long in the saddle, but compared to 2... I'll risk Girl.

    2 Seems kinda cocky, but that comb is SMALL...

    3 Leaning towards ladies, nosey ladies.

    4 Leaning lady....

    5 Lady and the Tramp? (front to back)

    6 Lady?

    7 Lady

    8 All Boy.

    9 Nosey girl, hard to tell on the one in back but the comb looks small from here??

    10 Look like ladies to me.

    11 Ladies with that one spunky fella playing the caboose.

    Again, just my guesses. I am a TOTAL noob. *passes salt cellar*

    I am more of a saddle feather sexer. If you do not want to take more pics take a look at the feathers right above the tail if oval then female if pointy then male. To me pic 1 is female from what I can see and pic 2 looks male. BRs are both female and I can not tell on the rest.

    I'm pretty new to this as well, but from what I can see the only one that looks like a rooster is that one red with the very big comb and developing wattles. My baby boys started crowing or practicing crowing at four to five months, it all depends on the individual. Just like we all learn to walk at different ages, so goes the crowing. [​IMG]
  8. Yep, they're all pullets except the one you know, your RIR.
