    These chicks are almost 6 weeks old. Any guesses on genders?

    They're too young to be sure. What breed are they?
    Although they are young, they look like females to me.

    Same here. LOL! I have about 8 years of chicken experience but these are just hard. I *thought* I had them figured out a couple times, but then they would change and I would be left guessing again. :p

    They are basically funky Easter Eggers. I bought the eggs off Ebay for fun. The listing said it was blue Easter egger hens, frizzled hens, rumpless araucana hens, with a blue araucana rooster, and black ameraucana rooster.

    I love guessing. I say one is a cockerel because of the pink comb, two is a pullet, and three is who knows but is ultra super cute!

    #1 is a cockerel, but on the other two, especially the second, can you wait a couple more weeks? I have a feeling 2 is a cockerel.....

    They will stick around until crowing starts. Lol! When they were little I swore #1 was a pullet and #2 & #3 were cockerels based on feather sexing, feather growth rate, and leg thickness. Now I am guessing that #1 and #3 are cockerels because they are my favorites and it always seems that the ones you like best turn out as the ones you can't keep.
