I ordered 15 suppose to be females from a hatchery, 4 have me worried they are roos... 2 of them I'm 90% sure they are roos, the other 2 I'm not sure.
#1 Cuckoo Maran pretty sure Paris is a Paul...

I like to guess, so...I'm gonna agree with you on Paul and George. Can't get any read on the Tetra Browns yet. 4 out of 15 isn't so bad. I had 3 cockerels out of 8 sexed pullets. I loved those boys a lot anyway.

:welcome I don't really know anything about these breeds, but I don't think any are cockerels. Although, I don't know much about sexing chicks at this age so I can't be sure. I hope you find out, though! :)

Some pullets develop faster then their clutch mates. If you start seeing pointed saddle feathers (the ones in front of the tail area) then yes, it would be a roo. Rounded is hen. This holds true for most breeds.

I think males are slower to feather out, and your photos show some nearly tailess chicks. Maybe potential cockerels.

Do post on the "what breed or gender," thread and say how old they are in photos.

All 4 were roos... And all 4 stood up to a fox protecting the pullets and didn't win.
