    Aloha,
    What do you think about this last round of chicks? Boy or girl?
    Dad is a game mix. There are multiple purebreed moms. They are 10-11 weeks old.

    #1: white leghorn mom
    #2: white leghorn mom
    #3: no idea...maybe one of the white leghorns (this one is my absolute favorite!)
    #4: this one is only about 7 weeks old. Probably one of our black leghorns is the mom

    Thanks! So fun![​IMG]

    It is really hard to tell at that age. Notice how varied some of the replies are? Don't sell one cause you are sure its a roo at this point. Wait till the 4 month age then you can start to tell. Good indicators: saddle feathers; roos have 'em hens don't, do NOT judge by the comb, it isnt a rooster indicator because it could mean you have a hen about to start laying, and neck feathers; this one is iffy but roosters have long, pionted hackle feathers. Good luck!
