    I have four 8-week old chicks and I have no idea what sex they are. Can you help, please?

    Chick#1 Princess (so we hope!) Very outgoing and will allow us to pick her up and hold her.

    Chick #2 Hello Kitty - Very shy.....won't eat out of our hands and can't get close to her.

    Left back is Chick #2 Right front is either Chick #3 or #4.

    Chick #3 & #4 I can't tell apart!!! One is friendly and will let us pick up, the other is very shy.

    My guess, and remember it's just guessing at this age:
    #1 Princess- pullet
    #2 Hello Kitty ??? I'm leaning towards roo just because the tail feathers are coming in slow
    #3 Roo - the photo in front of Hello Kitty looks like it shows some hackle feathers in the neck and also the beginning of sickle feathers at the tail.
    #4 Pullet- if this is the second to last photo- it looks like a girl.

    Anyone else???

    I think the red chick in your seventh photo may turn out to be a roo (I hope I'm wrong). The Buff Orpington looks like a girl to me.
    Good luck [​IMG].

    Thank you for the replies. We can not keep any roosters so I am hoping that they are all pullets [​IMG]
