    I have 5 chicks that Imy family hatched and i have been taking care of, but I'm really curious to know if they are girls or boys. Three of them I am pretty confident are girls, but I have two others I'm not sure about. I read that feathers on the neck and tail can tell the difference. Can anyone tell me if I have two roosters or just one? Thank you 20190422_182108.jpg 20190422_182103.jpg 20190422_182033.jpg 20190422_182000.jpg

    Got pics of combs when they were 6 weeks old?
    That's the easiest time to tell with most breeds.
    Saddle and hackle feathers don't show until ~3-4 months old.

    Can you also give me an idea of how old they look? Not really sure how old they are.

    I'm actually not sure how old they are I just got them from a family member to start taking care of. Do they look older than 2 months?

    Both are definitely cockerels.
