    Opinions on gender would be greatly appreciated. All chicks are almost 2 weeks old. And each picture is different chick.

    Hmm that's what I was thinking but wasn't sure with how much black the two have. And I was hoping for at least one rooster

    Body and leg feathers are a better indicator of gender than wing feathers. Some light colored cockerels can look like pullets if one goes by wings only.

    Boys will have a black chest, girls will have a cream to creamy red chest.

    Are they hatchery birds? If they are, some are poorly colored and will have black chests- my Rose had a completely black chest when she was young, and now it's only a strip of black on her chest. She has more in this pic than she does now.
