    Anyone want to take a guess at the gender of these 8-ish week out chicks. (1) RIR, (1) Buf Orph and (2) Ameracaunas...

    Thanks all. I have my suspicions but would LOVE some input/help. We're a new backyard bird family!!!

    Penny is trying to get at my daughter who has some type of treat - i.e. her neck is stretched:

    Pullets. I would say the first pic of your RIR is suspect, however I have two just like her. Mine are 9 weeks old and are now getting the bigger comb and a bit of color and waddles.

    Thanks I think the same about the RIR - Shim has all the characteristics they say about a cockerel... The kids love shim the most so I hope not, because the area doesn't allow for roosters! (And my neighbors wouldn't appreciate it either... *sigh*

    RIR - Roo
    EE - Pullet
    BO - Pullet

    they only possible roo is the RIR... not positive on that, but that would be the only one to worry about!
