    So my girls are approximately 10 weeks old now, except for the yellowish one. He/she is maybe a week younger than the rest.

    A few of you thought I had 1-2 perhaps roosters and the rest hens.

    Pls, opinions now at 10 weeks?

    Much appreciated.

    [​IMG] -- Gertie, my favorite. Barred Rock
    [​IMG] -- Lizzie Borden, front view. Black Australorp?
    [​IMG] -- Lizzie, side view.
    [​IMG] -- Twiggy(buff colored), Not sure what breed or what gender(rooster?). Betty, Barred Rock. She's not crowing, she was trying to swallow a piece of grass.
    [​IMG] -- Whatcha think? Rooster? Also..WHAT is he/she? Still dunno the breed.
    [​IMG] -- Here's a good front view of him/her.
    [​IMG] -- And here is lovely Estelle. Golden Campine.
    [​IMG] -- Side view.
    [​IMG] -- Couple more group shots.

    The little buff one is a Buff Orpington and may be a roo.

    The rest look like pullets to me, and there is still a chance of the buff one being a pullet, I would wait and see.

    Twiggy is a buff orpington. Could be a roo, but too close to tell.

    Yeah, I can't tell either. He/she is just feathering SO much more slowly than the others, and he/she just seems to carry itself in a different way as well. Ah well, time will tell I guess. I may keep him/her regardless. I hear a rooster is good for a flock of hens, just as long as the others are in fact all hens. :d Thanks for the input, any more is welcome.

    In return, more pics. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] -- Gertie no longer fits in the palm of my hand. And she makes little cooing noises when I cuddle her. ^.^ <3

    [​IMG] -- They're very cooperative when I take pictures.

    [​IMG] -- They've officially been allowed to roam freely in the backyard for about a week now. Everyone is happier that they now live outside.

    [​IMG] -- One last one of Gertie. She are special. [​IMG]

    Thanks again.

    Gertie could be either/or in terms of a pullet or roo, but my hunch is pullet because I'm not seeing saddle feathers.

    Lizzie, Betty and Estelle are pullets.

    Don't despair if you have more than one roo. Since they've grown up together, chances are they'll get along.
