    Can anyone tell the sex of these 3 chickens? The first yellow one is a buff, the second brown one is a speckled sussex and the third black one is a dominique. All of them are 4 weeks old. I am not allowed to have roosters here so I was hoping to find out early in case I have to find homes. Thank you all!

    They are really far too young to tell. The Dom is most likely a pullet based on her barring, but you'll need to post new photos of the other birds when they are 8-10 weeks of age.

    To young to say for sure, but the first two are looking suspicious.

    As stated by the others, I think in a couple weeks we should know for sure. [​IMG] Although I will say the Dominique looks pulletish (to me) at the moment, while the Sussex might be leaning more towards cockerel.
