    so we got all of our chicks at Rural
    King (we bought 16-wanting only pullets-and so far 3 have been roosters) and today I noticed one of my Easter Eggers was looking more like a roo. Here’s a pic. Thanks for your help.

    you can tell sex by the way they behave also.. im good with sexing silkies but other breeds i can only tel you that boys stand and act different.. from moment of hatch they stand upright more then girls, they check things out first, they are curious and braver also.. So if your chicken is taking care of the girls or calling them when they find food or standing upright vs the girls then you have a boy but if they all act same maybe u r in luck and have a girl.. good luck!!
