    I know, I know .... it's still early, but they've change a bit since last time I took pics. So maybe they are a little bit more obvious about their gender. Otherwise, I will be satisfied with some guesses.

    Seeing these bushy tails, I'm starting to think all roos.[​IMG]

    What do you think?

    I think the first brownish one is a pullet. The other three, ehhh???? If they're hatchery sexed, I wouldn't worry too much (I had one I swore was a boy until 10 weeks and she's gorgeous now) but those last two should definately be more feathered at 4 weeks.

    Thanks. I have three chicks that are smaller then the other 6. [​IMG] I keep them separated now, so they don't need to fight for food with the bigger ones. Hopefully they catch up. I got them at an auction [​IMG], so they may not be the best quality. [​IMG]

    Oh, and they aren't exactly 4 weeks yet, more like 3 and a half.
