    Ok well here are pics of my 6 chickens, I tried to make them as clear as possible. A few of them are not the greatest. They are suppose to be all pullets, but im not 100% sure, hopefully a few of you more experienced people can help me out. Thanks in advance for any help :)

    Oh and if it helps, they are 56 days old, or 8 weeks, in these pics, taken today.

    I'm no expert but id say you definitely have at least one boy, the light one with the yellow legs.

    No sorry, that one is pretty light so maybe. I was thinking the one with the black tie. Is the pic above the one with the feet with black tie the same chook?

    I'm sorry, I'm on the mobile site so I don't see rows, just a column.
    Well, the things I know to look for (and again I'm no expert) are yellow feet + lighter color = boy, darker color + black on legs = girl.

    Well Im hoping that 1 of them will be a rooster. I originally only wanted 5 chickens, but got 6 hoping I would get 1 boy and 5 girls. So I guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed lol
