    Hello all! I have been coming onto this site for a while now, and finally am in need of your opinions :) I have had 2 beautiful ladies for 18 months now and last week adopted 3 chicks (a friend also adopted 3), which we have fallen inlove with! I have been trying to figure out their sex all week, 4 are just over 5 weeks and 2 are just over 4 weeks. Any thoughts? I think 4/5 are male, hoping not all of them!

    They are my friends 3 at 5ish weeks

    Those are some cute little ones you have there. I am definitely not an expert when it comes to sexing young ones but some of yours have some fairly impressive combs for 5 week olds.

    Just my humble opinion but in your top picture, I am thinking all males. In the bottom picture, I am thinking male on the top left, pullet on the bottom left and I am undecided on the one on the right.

    Your friend has all roosters, you have a rooster and two pullets.
