    We are new to the world of Chicks and purchased these girls recently knowing the local council laws exclude roosters in the backyard. We're already attached to these chicks, and the kids (age 5 & 7) will be terribly upset if we have to return any roosters. Is anybody able to take a guess at this early stage as to whether we have boys in the house please? We think they are nearly 5 weeks old.

    Yellow chick - Buff Orphington - named Amy
    Spotty chick - Speckled Sussex - named Cadence
    Black chick - Barnevelder - named Jetstorm

    Where did you get them? The Sussex looks to be your only pullet.

    Amy and Jetstorm look like cockerels and Candence is your only pullet. :(

    Do you know ... I was afraid of that! I've been doing loads of research and I had a hunch we had two cocks, but my inexperience has me hopeful. We got them at City Chicks in Brisbane, Australia. Thank you for your quick reply - I really appreciate it. I'd love to see if anybody else shares the same view.
