    My chicks might be too young yet to say Rooster or Hen or the pictures might not be good enough, but I would appreciate hearing what you think. They are supposed to be hens but a friend keeps telling me "that one's a rooster." They were hatched on April 26, 2011. Thanks.

    Every time one of them jumps up on top the quart water jar, my friend says: "cock-a-doodle-doo." He's trying to be funny but has me worried. ONE for-sure hen--NINE not-for-sures. Thank you for the replies.

    I have chicks the exact same age. One already has a big pink comb. I don't see any like that in your pics, so that's reason to hope for lots of girls, although it is really early to say for sure. In the next week or two you'll start to have a better idea!
