    The chicklets are 3 1/2 weeks old now and I think I'm figuring out what they are. I'd love to hear if you think I'm right or not. First I'll show you what they looked like day old, and then now. BTW, they were all named by my 8 and 10 yo DD. [​IMG]

    4 NH Reds, all pullets?

    This is just my opinion.
    Your SLW all roos.
    And August and Peppy roos for sure not too sure on Speedy and Sunny. JMO I say the rest are pullets.
    And if those are for sure gold sex links then yes 100% pullets. [​IMG]

    Thank you Harley's girl. Eight of these guys were packing peanuts, so it makes sense that the 3 SLW and 5 Buff Cochin are all roos. I am not sure those are Gold Sex Links, that is just my best guess based on their appearance and what the hatchery had available when they shipped to me.

    Now I have to convince the kids that at least 5 of the roos need to find new homes. At this point that might be easier than convincing hubby I need more pullets. [​IMG]

    IMO, all of your NHR's are pullets, but Ace and Midnight might be roos. at 3 1/2 weeks, they should still be dark. Keep an eye on them.
