I’ve got three 15 week old chicks and I’m under the suspicion that two are cockerels and one is a pullet. I’d really like to try and get a decent idea of the sexes because I have way too many roosters right now so I can try and rehome these boys. The cockerels are I believe a australorp/silkie/ameraucana/maybeRIR mix and the pullet is a australorp/silkie mix. I’ve noticed the tail feathers are very rooster like and also they both have had rather large combs from a very young age and the more colorful one has been very dominant and kind of aggressive already. Both seem to have larger legs then the pullet also. Here’s some pictures of the chicks. Ignore their dirty faces, they just got done eating some yummy fermented feed. Any opinions appreciated!!
