    Okay - these are nearly 5 weeks old.

    Chickpea - rooster

    Frieda - pullet

    Chucky - we thought it was a boy initially but maybe it's a pullet(?)

    The last 2 hatched from blue eggs so they have some Araucana (?) in them

    Matilda - pullet

    Jemimah - pullet

    Any suggestions would be great. Thanks in advance.[​IMG]

    I think you are correct on your guesses, but I think Chucky may be a roo.......

    Yeah - we thought so too - hence the name...he/she does seem to have wattles starting to show but the comb isn't as distinct as Chickpea so we're not sure. We'll give them all another 2-3 weeks to be sure.
