    No expert here but see lots of pointy neck feathers and curly tail feathers. Not a great sign. Maybe som EEs? The experts will let you know!

    Other than the pointed neck feathers I'm going with Girl for Lucy. The other mulicolored ones I agree Roo. The black one...looks like a Roo body shape but not a huge red comb or wattle for that age so guess it would depend on the breed. Probablynot much help but its fun guessing.

    Give it a few more weeks, but I'd say at 16 weeks, the light brahma is a girl, buff brahma is a girl, black one is a girl, the booted bantams are both boys.
