I bought and hatched some chicks and I’m concerned I hatched a bunch of Roos and bought some Roos that were supposed to be hens! Anyone want to take a guess?
Pic 1 is an Easter Egger bought at Blue Seal Feeds, I purchased on April 9th.
Pic 2 is an Easter Egger/Americauna I hatched on April 12th. Pic 3,4,5,6, and 7 are Frenched Black Copper Maran chicks hatched on April19th and April 20th. Pic 8 is a Buff Orpington chick I purchased on April 9th. Fingers crossed I have a bunch of girls, any guesses would be appreciated!

My guesses...

I have 1 as a hen by comb but I also see roo-like saddle feathers so it’s probably a slow-developing cockerel

2 is indeterminate for me.

3 is a boy

4 is a pullet

5 is a cockerel

6 is a pullet

7 is a cockerel

8 if difficult because they have dark comb and wattles but rounded tail feathers.

I think I’m going to wait another week to see what happens. I think I’m in denial about #1 .... I really wanted her to be a hen! Also #8 the buff Orpington, has anyone ever had one get their comb and wattles like this at 8 weeks and be a hen?

I’m just gonna throw this out there…This is one of our hens “biscuit” at 10 weeks. I made it over 3 years ago but I always kept it. One of my chicken friends swore she was a he BUT she laid out first egg at 16 weeks. She was an awesome layer but we had to put her down at 3 1/2 years old due to tumors in her abdomen.
