    I have 13 rhode island reds and 20 dominiques, they are nine weeks old. how can I tell which ones are hens and which ones are roosters.

    P.S. If you can find photos of them that would help

    They are too young to tell their sex , but keep your eye on the thickest leg and change of tail feathers (roosters) . give them few more weeks you will notice!
