    these chicks were left at my house so I took them in a decided to raise them. I was first told that they are Delaware chickens but after research they look more like wheaten marans. After reading a lot about sexting I think that I have 2 males and 2 females. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    You definitely have 1 cockeral but individual pictures would help determine the rest.

    I have 4 chicks. I think they are about 4-5 weeks old. I'm thinking #4 is a male and #2&#3 are females and not sure about #1

    4 does look male. It's really too early to say for sure on the rest.

    they're not Delawares, but they're not Marans either. they kind of look like barnyard mixes, but they're at that stage where it's hard to say cause you can't see down color or feather color. Post again when they're fully feathered and we'll have a better idea about breed. should know gender at that point also.
