Thanks, sending foto's to reconfirm, now at nearly 9 weeks number 2. #1 for sure a roo, #3 for sure a hen I think...#1 is male. #2 likely male. #3 is female.
Fresh photos in a few weeks to confirm would be good.
I would hang on to #1 a bit longer. Looks female to me. The barred bird is a pullet.
Maybe I was not expressing myself clear re the numbering since this was a second post, I edited the post. Number 1 is the white one, number 2 (brown) was with doubt and number 3 was the barred one. ThanksI would hang on to #1 a bit longer. Looks female to me. The barred bird is a pullet.
Barred (3) is female. White (1) is male.Maybe I was not expressing myself clear re the numbering since this was a second post, I edited the post. Number 1 is the white one, number 2 (brown) was with doubt and number 3 was the barred one. Thanks
Thank you, I suspected as much but time will tell. At the moment they seem to be quite dominated by the larger hens and happy to tag along in the adventures. Even the mini silkie like to put them in their place which makes me wonder if he is a she after all haha. They are a firm member of the family either wayKinda hard to tell from the photos.
Likely a cockerel.
CockerelThis barnyard mix is about 3 months old. The comb and waddle look cockerel to me, but the tail feathers look pullet....
Buff Brahma is a cockerel, not sure about the silkiesI got a bunch of bantam chicks and ended up with a Buff Brahma and three Silkies. The only one of the bunch that has crowed is the first Silkie, so I know he is a boy...but these other? Edited to say they are between 13 to 16 weeks old as I don't know how old they were when I got them...they were not day old chicks for sure. I started counting weeks from when I got them so that would be 13 weeks ago...but they are older than that...I just don't know how many weeks older but my guess is between 1-3 weeks older, thus my 13-16 week range.
The first two pictures are of the Silkie that is crowing...
Too young for me to be sure. Pretty chicks!Here they are
All look like pullets except for SparkyOk so my chicks are about 6.5 weeks old as of this last Sunday (when the pics are taken) (as of today they are 7 weeks old. any ideas on gender? I know Sparky is a cockerel, but am unsure if Squirt or Maverik is or not, along with Sparky they were late bloomers for there tail and body feathers and as you can see Squirt is still a little behind. the other 3 I feel like at this point are pullets, but i could be wrong. I bought them all from TSC as "Ameraucanas" (finding out later that they are Easter Eggers (which is fine because that's what I wanted originally)).

5. Here is Squirt (another one that I am not sure on has been growing slower then the rest)
Squirt is very sweet and enjoys perching on my hand and arm (tries on the shoulder but try not to let her/him go on my shoulder)

So here are all of them, let me know what you all think, I will be taking more pictures on this upcoming Sunday (been taking weekly pictures on Sundays) so if you want the next set of pictures let me know.
Black and lavender 2 are cockerelsOkay so I have 4 6 week old babies. I know two are most likely roos, but looking at the other two I am not sure, I know it is still early but I am hoping I didn't get 4 roos. 2 lavender orpington and 2 barnyard mixes.

Looks like a pullet so far
Not sure yet, but leaning towards pullet on the Easter eggerMy kids and I are new to raising chickens and have four 6-week-old chicks. I'm pretty sure two are pullets, but we use some help sexing these two. The first one, Pip, is an Australorp and the second one, Sweet Pea, is maybe an Easter Egger? (Also, is it weird that the Australorp doesn't have any tailfeathers yet?) Thanks for any help!
