    We just purchased 3 Barred Rock Buff Orpington crosses and 4 Rhode Island Reds. We need help sexing these chicks. The sellers also sold us a larger chick that they said was 1 1/2 weeks old. He looks much older and we'd like to get an age for him. Thanks for the help![​IMG]

    I'll be in the barn!
    He looks maybe closer to 3 weeks and as for sexing them, you'll have to wait till the others are around 31/2-4 weeks old. The one older chick in question seems to be a cockerel.

    Do you have updated pictures. I am particularly interested to see the tails as that is how I have been able to sex mine. I think. =)
