I hatched these chicks around six weeks ago from my mixed flock. May be too soon but I am so curious. Any help appreciated!

#1, my guess is cockerel

#4 and finally cuckoo maran mix. Hope this is a pullet. It was the first hatched, and the only one I have named. Mr. or Mrs Peepers

The wolf on your shirt looks like it's trying to eat your chicks.

I've heard it said to look at the hackles. If the ends of them are pointy, that means that it is a cockerel. If they are round, pullet.

Beautiful chicks, though! :love

Thanks! I have heard that too but don't think it's quite that simple. For example, here is a picture of a hen with very pointy hackles.

This is a tough one. If I have to guess they all look like pullets but you might be right and the fist one is a cockerel. Good luck. They are all very pretty

I think 2/3 are pullets and 4 is a toss up, I think 1 is a cockerel.

if there is no warrior development within the next week on #4, I think that’s probably a girl too.
