    Actually looking again the one in the first picture could be a female, but it will be easier to tell in a couple weeks.

    I agree with above they are still to young to know for sure what the sex is. Have fun with your chickens and just warning you it does turn into a addiction. I started off with 2 hens now i have 39 hens and 3 roosters lol

    How old are they, where did you get them, and were they sexed or straight run?

    They are supposed to be about 4 weeks. Got them from a local person- they are a straight run. We wanted hens but most hatcheries were done for the year so we just bought from a local person who had them for sale.
