    Hi[​IMG]
    We were hoping with some help sexing our six 9 week old chicks....they are a mix of bantam and LF and all have been 'squaring up' with each other....please tell us they're not all cockerels....

    Bango-we're pretty sure this ones a cockerel from the wattle and comb development
    [​IMG]

    Pop-we are unsure of this one...getting a bit pink around the beak but not as much as others...another pic later down...
    [​IMG]

    Bingo- again, we're unsure of this one....unlike the siblings, it has a black pea comb rather than walnut so its hard to compare
    [​IMG]

    Snap-any ideas on this nearly pure silkie? quite a poofy head...
    [​IMG]

    Bongo-we think cockerel maybe just from the wattle and comb development, its alot like Bangos except black instead of red
    [​IMG]

    Another view of Pop, showing some comb a bit more....
    [​IMG]

    Finally, Crackle,a polish/pekin cross, we are pretty sure he's a cockerel just from looking...

    Snap and Pop might be pullets, the rest are boys.

    I think that Snap and Pop are females. However, the rest look like males, especially Crackle and Bongo. Sorry!

    Thanks for your replies! We were thinking that Snap and Pop were the least rooish...i'm still hoping Bingo might be a pullet maybe because of the smallish comb?
