    So after years of begging, I finally got pet chickens - yay me. Ordered five from MPC, all supposed to be girls..... but we all know how that goes. So if you could, look at my (hopefully) girls, and tell me if they really are girls. Thanks!
    All of them are now 8 weeks old.
    Lacey the SLW - my prime suspect for roo-ness. Comb started turning red at like 3 weeks...

    Molly the EE - my next suspect as a roo, but I hear EE's are kinda hard to sex.

    Lucy the Delaware (sorry the first pic is so dark, she was very skeptical of the lights xD)

    Ruby the BO - she is the calmest, sweetest chicken ever. Much love.

    They all look like girls to me. no expert here. I have a slw from mpc. yours is similar to mine and I think mine is a pullet. I got 15 chicks from mpc and I only suspect one of them is turning out to be a roo.

    I really hope the SLW is a girl. He/she doesn't really act like a roo, but that comb was red super early and s/he feathered very slowly....

    I don't see any signs of roosters. By 8 weeks, it would be very noticeable in the comb/wattles. (except for the EE, but your's has the pattern of a girl) So I say, you have all GIRLS!

    Oh good! That makes me feel much better. I'd have to get rid of any roosters, which would be sad! I'm having a blast with these girls.
