    Hi, I'm just starting out and I'm establishing my flock. I got some chicks that unsexed. Just wondering if anyone could help me guess what they are.

    B. 4 week old Peking

    C. 4 week old Silkie cross

    D. 4 week old Silkie cross

    E. 5 week old Sizzle

    F. 4 week old mixed breed

    G. 5 week old mixed breed

    H. 5 week old mixed breed

    I'd say, too soon to tell. It will be a long time before they crow anyway.
    Before I knew my neighbors didn't care or couldn't hear them, I would always butcher a rooster a few days after their first feeble crow.
    Now I have about 10 roosters.

    All of them look like roosters to me expect for A and F. It's hard to tell at this age though.

    B, E, H, and I look like cockerels to me. They're all still a little young to be sure, though.

    too early especially with silkie crosses, I'd love to know what the other parent was - C & D are adorable.

    It's too early for definitive sexing, but I would guess B, C, E, G, H, and I are cockerels, and A, D, and F are pullets.
