    So I have 5 chicks that are 9 1/2 weeks old now. Any guesses on whether they are cockerels or pullets??? I posted two pictures of each chick. :)

    Chick #1 - Blue Laced Red Wyandotte - (pullet??)

    I would say 3 and 5 are girls. Rest are boys

    You should post them when they are a few weeks older too.

    3 is iffy to me. Orps can be slow to mature and I feel this one could go either way.
    5 is a pullet.
    the rest are males.

    I think that both three and five are pullets. The others are definitely males.

    The BLR is a cockerel.

    I thought I'd update this post. All of the chicks turned out to be roosters! Just my luck, eh?!
