    I am a first time chicken owner and I need help telling the sex of these two chicks I have been raising for a about a month. One is 8 weeks old the other is 5 going off of when they were said to have hatched. The feed store selling the first one guarantees all females and the second one only said 95% certainly. Thank you

    The barred rock is a roo based on the width of the white bars. Not confident about the other.

    sorry, but I think they're both males. You'll probably have to wait a bit on the second one before trying to get a refund though, until male characteristics become more apparent.

    What breed did they say that second one is? Pretty cool coloring....is it supposed to be a SLW?

    Oh, ok. Yeah, that's probably a Wyandotte/Am mix then, judging by that color. Too bad it looks to be a cockerel-- could've probably gotten some super pretty green eggs out of a pullet that looked like that....bummer.
