    I have 13 chicks from a heavy layer assortment (4 weeks old), 5 from Asher here on the forum, and two silkies i picked up at a sale, and Lola. Any ideas on genders from the 7 not from the pullet assortment.

    3 Barred Rocks (these are from the assortment but i think I have one cockerel)

    Any ideas on genders for the ones with question marks would be great.

    also the Barred rock cockerel has crooked two crooked toes, anything I can do for this?

    Corey, that is definitely a BR cockerel and I dont think much can be done for the toes. They look like our SS cockerels' toes did. I really hate to venture a guess on the other chicks, except to say look at the leg sizes of the ones you have multiples of and if you see thicker legs, you probably are looking at a cockerel.

    I liked looking at all your pictures.

    But I don't know enough about specific breeds to say anything to your questions.

    Thanks for the photots.

    The only ones I can comment on are the barred Rocks. The one in the center is definitely a cockerel.

    All I can say is the middle BR is a boy in the first pic and it seems like the first sikie (audry) is a boy too... but those thing are nearly impossible to say. Just That I can see his comb already!

    Looking again, I want to say pumpkin got suspicious red wattles and that one of your GLW's is a boy. (the one with the pink comb)

    Oh, I can say your sexlinks girls are girls too!
