    I am just too impatient to wait for eggs or crowing. Can anyone help sex some of my chicks? I have 5 EE's (2 shown here), 3 BR's (only one pic), 4 Siver Spangled Hamburgs (too flighty to get pics), 1 Speckled Sussex Roo not pictured and 1 Roo of some breed (He has five toes). Anyone? Please point out what tipped you off about their gender so I can try to sex the camera shy ones. Any help would be appreciated.

    The bird in the last pic is a Salmon Faverolle. The rest of your pics look like girls [​IMG]

    Wait a sec... Does the bird in the second to last pic not have a single comb?

    Quote:I thought he was a Salmon Faverolle. Will he ever grown feathers on his back? lol I am hoping the majority of my babies are girls as we already have four roos.

    If it does not have a single comb, It's not a BR. It could be a Dominique, or a mutt. [​IMG]

    The first two are Easter Egger pullets.

    The third looks like a Dominique pullet.

    The last photo is a Salmon Faverolle and it's a cockerel.

    I agree with the above post. The best way to tell is by the feathers. Roo's have pointed (and longer once they're older) hackle and saddle feathers, pullets have round ones.
