    The fluffed up chick in the picture is a Cream Legbar. I know they are auto sexing but I don't know what gender. Can somebody help?

    Looks like a pullet but they have to dry up a but more before you can tell.

    Females have very distinct "CHIPMUNK-ing" meaning they have a thick dark brown stripe down the center of the back with distinct light stripes on either side. They also have a very obvious brown head with light stripes over their eyes.

    In the males, the stripes are much more muted meaning they aren't as defined as the females and the brown is more a grey than a red.

    From your picture it looks like a female but you have to give them another day or two to feather out. Google images has a ton of pictures comparing the two. Hope this was helpful.

    I had 7 chicks hatch. 3 were Cream Leghorns, 3 Were Blue laced red Wyandottes, and 1 was a rhodebar. I cant really tell which is which. I have like 4 chipmunk striped ones. 2 greyish yellowish ones and 1 more yellow than grey. One of the chipmunks is a reddish color so im thinking that one is a Female Rhodebar. What are the blueish ones?

    You BLRW will have rose combs, and will have the blue-grey/yellow coloration. The rose comb will look like a tiny horseshoe oriented so the luck runs down the bill.

    The other breeds are single combs, and will look like the usual tiny ridge or even picket fence going up the head.

    You've gotten good info on the Rhodebar vs. Cream Legbar, which I concur with. Here's a link for visual comparison:
