    I'm hoping that i can get this working properly to post pics of my kids--i would love to know the genders for REAL!! we named them on suspicion and perhaps are wrong!!
    chick-pretty sure it's a hen
    [​IMG]
    fluffy-pretty sure it's a hen
    [​IMG]
    wednesday-crows--it's a boy!!
    [​IMG]
    scrappy-thought girl-not sure-had 2 name changes already
    [​IMG]
    big mama-really really really disappointed if it's a roo
    [​IMG]
    mr roo-roo---he's definitely a boy!!
    [​IMG]
    they were all given to me from the same hatching of eggs and are 5 1/2 months old!!

    Well, it's certainly possible that I am wrong. The only two I could be wrong about though are Chick and Scrappy because it's harder to see if there are saddle feathers. Big Mama is definitely a rooster though. You can tell because of the skinny saddle feathers and the shiny, sickle feathers in the tail.

    if i keep them-other than introducing more hens-how do i keep them from hurting each other?? my coop can hold maybe 12 and my smaller coop can hold maybe 4 comfortably. they're free range so how do i "tell" them to split up and you sleep here and you sleep there!! we're too attached to play favorites and oust a few!!:aww

    Fluffy is your only hen. All of the rest are roosters.

    I think that Fluffy is the only girl!

    They all have long pointy saddle feathers and shiny! To me Chick looks like boy too..he/she has those big thick legs and his/her saddle feather (even though they are white) point down too! He looks like a sex link to me! Someone correct me if I am wrong, but the sex link roosters are white and the hens are brown/red??
