    maybe i'll get more answers posting here... i've got a couple that i'm not sure about, and i have someone coming to look at them tomorrow. I told her i'm selling them straight run, but since it's her first time getting chickens and she lives in a place you can't have roosters, i'd like to try and match her up with the ones more likely to be female, since i'm just that nice.

    3rd pic down the chic on the right looks might it may be male. All the others look female to me.

    Not sure, sorry. They are pretty though. Do you know if there is any validity to the tale that if you hold them by the back of the neck (gently of course) and they pull their legs up towards their bodies, that they are pullets. If they stretch their legs out straight, then they are roos..anyone know???

    Quote:I agree with this. I think that 3rd pic down, chick on the right is a cockeral.

    They all seem to be pullets except the right one in the third picture from the top.

    ok, i was pretty sure he was a roo, the other one i was thinking is a roo is the bottom pic, only because it seems to have the same feathering pattern? But it got a big full tail really fast while the other roo didn't...
