    Hi all! I'm new at chicken keeping and just got some chicks a couple weeks ago. I'd like to introduce them and any feedback on their genders would be greatly appreciated! Im hoping for all hens so I'm dying to find out! Thanks!

    This is Gertrude, the Buff Orpington. About 3 weeks old.

    This is Helga, the Black Australorp, 3 weeks (she's really shy, hard to get a good picture of)

    These are my bantam Cochins. Dorothy is the grey one, Pearl is the yellow/white one. They're about 2 weeks old and still very shy. Pearl won't let me come near her :( hope that changes!

    I am also new to the chicken world. I bought 10 chicks from the flee market and here we are 4 months later and I ended up with 2 hens and 8 roosters. One of the hens has laid a total of 18 eggs and I have 14 of them in the incubater. So I really need to know how to tell their sex.

    Welcome to BYC. Post pictures in several weeks. Right now a guess at gender would be just that 'a guess'.
