    These chicks were hatched July 29-30. They are a BJG X cochin, BJG X RIR, or BJG X Americauna. I'm not sure about the two. My BCM had hatched out 4 of four eggs, two RIRs, one Bl Cochin, and one Americauna. One died a couple of days after hatching. It was healthy, I don't know what happened. Anyway, I have these three left. Any idea as to sexes? I'm thinking (hoping) tow pullets and one roo. Any guesses? Sorry, these are the best pics I could get.

    need closer pics of their faces, look like pullets but hard to tell from far off.

    That's what I was thinking, too. Also, that one acts more "roo-ish" than the other two.

    I think you're probably right. The one on the feed dish appears to be a cockerel.
