    I got 6 chicks at the farm store a few weeks ago....so I THINK these are about 2.5 weeks old. They are in the corral with a few meaties....so ignore those big guys :)

    I've figured out how to tell them apart....but I think I have a 'roo!



    Let's see if I can post pics.....
    This one shows the suspected roo in the front center

    Another angle for the possible roo and others

    I couldn't figure out how to post pics....but if you highlight these and just go to the website you can see them...thanks in advance!

    Okay...so after searching around here for some hints...I looked at the legs and I think I have the breeds figured out. Now all I need to know is if someone can help me figure out the genders. The pic of the Welsummer suspect in the middle front...and there is one to his right with rather large comb, compared to the others. But the one in the middle is the biggest.

    Help! I can't have roosters where I live :(

    I think you are right about the roo - that comb is awfully big for such a little chick.

    I can't post picture directly (maybe its just because I'm on my iPad...or because I'm so new?) So you have to just click each link. Sorry =/

    I think it is a roo too. Very large bright colored comb already.
