    To post pics of my girls (???) to see if they are indeed girls? Mine are all 5 weeks old. I was assured they were pullets, but after reading some threads here I am starting to doubt.

    You can post pics and depending on the breed, it might be possible to tell.

    In a few weeks (like 10-12 weeks of age) they start getting their secondary sex characteristics - like saddle and pointy neck feathers, etc which makes it easier to tell.

    I believe you've got some roos in there.

    The first Delta and Dizzy looks rooish to me. Dixie I can't tell, the pic is too hard to see. The second Delta looks like maybe Roo but not real sure.

    I'd definitely give them more time. Sometimes you can have a very rooish looking young hen [​IMG].
