    Hatched these chicks 13 weeks ago and still struggling it determining the sex, I think out of the 10 I have 3 cockerels and rest pullets.
    These are a mix breed with black-rock mothers and rhode island red fathers.
    Got this initial photo going to take individual pictures/in pairs for better viewing.
    Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Could you get individual pictures of each chicken? It would make things a lot easier, it is kind of hard to tell in these pictures

    I agree. It's hard to tell in the picture

    However, from the picture, I think you have at least two cockerels, and probably three.

    I'm leaning towards 5 cockerels - both black birds, and 3 of the reds. Individual pictures would be more definitive.

    I would say 5 maybe 6 cockerals. There is one black female and 2 black males (the closest and farthest ones) and 3 possibly 4 reds.
