    Hello everyone,
    Hoping you all could help me sex some chicks that I recently purchased. They are about 4 weeks old now and I'm afraid many of them might be little roos. I'm really not very familiar with how these breeds develop as they grow, so any advice would be greatly appreciated! Sorry the pictures aren't the best but the babies weren't too fond of the flash!

    Last pic the one on the right is a cockerel... Sulmtaler males get black feathers on their chests, females do not...
