    I have 6 5 weeks old chicks. I think one possibly 2 are roosters. the first 2 black ones are Lexi, (austrlorp) or is it lex? He/she is bossy and rough, and his comb and waddle are clearly there! The second 2 are bambi and thumper americaunas, the third white are bantams frenchie and peep. the last black one at the end of photo shoot is the second austrlorp and her name is sloan. HELP?[​IMG]

    First one is definitely a little roo. The silkies you'll be waiting on sexing for a while - they are very hard to sex! The others so far all look like pullets - no comb and wattle growth :)
