I have a 7 new babies. I have been reading that you can easily sex BR by the color of the legs and spot on the heads. I have just one BR. I am just not confident what I have here. Can anyone help?

I don’t think that is 100% accurate. I’d wait to see more of the feathering through the wings to see. If they look mostly white then yes, cockerel. But if they look black/grey then you most likely have a pullet. Here are my girls at that age and now they’re over 17 weeks old and clearly pullets.
