    Hi I was just wondering if anyone could offer some thoughts on gender. I'm pretty sure pic 1 is a female and pic 2,3,4 are males. It's butchering day and I'd just hate to accidentally butcher a future egg layer because of my own rookie skills because I never had goldens before. Thanks!

    Edit: they're about 8 weeks old give or take a couple days if that helps. No luck vent sexing yet or any calling. But also no eggs either.

    You should be able to vent sex them at this age also...
