    To sext a chicken, first you have to get them a phone...hahahaha!!
    Just a joke on the mistype in the title.

    Seriously, you need to get good clear pics of each chicken individually, full body profile and close up of head combs.
    Give the age of the chickens.

    Agree we need better pics, but I'd hazard the bird front and center and the one eating are cockerels.

    Oh, and [​IMG]

    I just checked my 12 week old Marans and one has buttons on its legs. Does this mean he's a Rooster

    Not necessarily. Even hens develop small spur buds, and some even grow large spurs. If you post some photos of your bird, we should be able to sex it for you.

    Nope :D
    Look for color in comb and wattle growth around 5-6 weeks for males.
