Do I have females or males?
Welcome to BYC! It is to young to say for sure on gender. Please post again in another 2 weeks or with natural lighting pictures.
It will be obvious in a couple more weeks but the ones with fat, white barring like center front and right front are looking male already. When I zoom in, the other two in back look female. I suspect 2 & 2.
Please show them under natural lighting. Numbered individual Pics of each, showing back and top of head, side profile, front of legs including shanks and feet.
A good strain of Doms is auto sexing and can be gender id at hatch, or any time thereafter.
Is this better
The first two are definitely male. To me, it's more a question about if the second two are as well. I can't tell yet.
The "chicken whisperers" here are better at sexing these chickens than I am. Although, having a couple of roosters is not all bad. The upside of having a Dominique rooster is they are good flock management birds. If you don't need a rooster, they are great eating around 36 weeks on high protein feed. No real downside.
Ok thank you
I agree, the first two are cockerels and the second two appear to be pullets.
Need to see back of heads, including necks. The head spot on a pullet will be very well defined and on the small side. The head spot on a cockerel will be "looser" and may spread down back of neck. It won't be as "tight".
Females have a nice dark wash on front of shanks and top of toes.
