    I have eight chickens, I need help sexing some of them though. I know my two white leghorns are girls, but I'm unsure about the rest. I have pictures, could you please help thanks!

    This yellow is Lovey

    I think Gilligan is a boy, but I don't know about the rest. I think the brown ones are Red Rhodeislands, and the three grayish ones are Americuanas. Thanks!

    I would say ginger is a hen and I can't see lovey very well but gilligan is definitely a rooster, and Thurston looks like a roo to me but I'm not familiar with Ameracaunas

    [​IMG] Ginger is a hen and a real beauty. The others I can't see well. You can post clear photos (best if only one chicken in photo), showing the face & comb, and side view showing the doy & feathers. List the age for each if possible. Post your photos on "what Gender or Breed is this." and you should have your answers.

    Thank all of you so much for welcoming me! All of the chickens are 4 months old about give or take a couple weeks. Tomorrow, I'll try to post better pictures of Lovey and Skipper.
