    Hoping you guys can help. I need to make space and really need to get rid of the excess boys here, so any imput would be great1 My first choices to go are the two brown leghorns, as i'm sure these are boys, as is the buff sussex I think. Any other very obvious boys at this stage??

    Here is RIR chick 1, faint pink comb, small legs:

    RIR1 again:

    RIR 2, redder comb than the other but small legs:

    Welsummer (by chest feathers, no black, girl?):

    Frisian Fowl, Im guessing girl, s/he's rather dainty:

    Ancona (?????), small legs, red comb?

    They're kinda young to tell yet post more pics in 2 weeks, and it will be easier to determine.

    Comb and all that aside... Just the color of the brown Leghorn says it's a roo.

    They look to be the same age as mine. My leghorns and blue Andalusian boys have huge combs like yours! It's amazing how fast they grow. I think your buff Sussex is also a boy.
