    I was given six chicks from a school embryology hatch..... they are all "mutts" but thats okay, what I NEED to know is are they roos or hens? They are 8-9 weeks old
    I know the black one is a roo, hes been crowing since he was 4 weeks old.

    At their age I am pretty confident in saying they are all roosters. Pullets usually won't start getting pink in their combs until around 15 weeks or later.

    Just from my experience, I would say all roos as well.

    The only one that I see that could possibly be a girl would be the orange one in the first picture. But that's really pushing it.
