    Ok everyone I really need help with these chicks. I have 4 BLRW Bantams, I cannot tell what they are! I am so stumped! They are just over 9 weeks old now. Boys or girls? And how can you tell? Please. THANK YOU!!!

    All their faces pretty much look the same. One is a little lighter... And I don't see saddle feathers on any of them... [​IMG]

    Pluck a feather from between each of their shoulder blades and an inchup towards their head and if the feather is pointed its a boy, if not pointed, wait a week and try again or possible girl.

    I see what looks like a young rooster in pics 3, 4, and 5. But hard to tell if it's the same chick or not :\\. A good way to tell which is probably a rooster is by looking at their combs and wattles. The bigger and brighter red the comb and wattle, the more likely it is that it's a boy.
