    Now for our Rhode Island Reds. This is Peach, 7 weeks old. She's looking a little sad in this photo as she had a leg injury a couple weeks ago. You can see her leg is a little swollen still.

    And lastly, this is Mandolin, also 7 weeks old:

    I would say Sunny, Roxie and Peach are all boys.

    I think Roxie should probably be Rocky. I don't know about any of the others.

    I think that Roxie and Sunny are definitely cockerels. I'd keep an eye on the EE (that's not a very common color fort pullets), and the 2 production reds ( it looks like they are getting hackle feathers).

    Sonny, Roxie and Zartan are roosters and Peach is looking suspicious as well.

    Since Peach and Mandolin's gender was questioned I thought I'd put up a couple more photos to see if that helps anyone give me a more definitive opinion. They are 7 weeks old.
