    Well I did manage to get some eggs to hatch after dh moved my incubator. Only 4 surviving Barred Rock and 3 RIR chicks. I think the new location created to much air current and being that the bator is old and cheap, things just did not work right.

    So here are my chickies. Care to guess on sexes?
    I suspect 1 roo and 2 pullets in the RIR. One of which is my upside down chick from hatching. Took 2 days to right herself but she did and is fine.

    Male BR chicks will often have larger, blotchy white spots on their heads, while the females have smaller, more defined spots. Looking at your pics, I'm guessing 2 males and 2 females, but I'm no expert.
