    Hi! So our birds are getting a little bigger, and we were hoping to see which of our birds are pullets, and which are roos. We are also unsure of the breeds, so if anyone has any guesses, that would be great! I've posted pictures below with their ages. I've tried to include pictures of their heads as well as bodies, but wasn't able to get both for some of them. Some of the pictures are also not the best...I apologize. Any guesses would be appreciated! Thank you!

    All I can tell you is that number 1 is a male barred rock.

    I think 1 is a barred rock and that 5 is an Easter egger.

    Don't quote me on thar lol. They are still very young to tell.

    Most are too young, post again when they are 6-8 weeks and in natural light. Camera flash washes out the color.

This is the only one we aren’t 100% sure of the sex. I believe this chicken is about 17 weeks old. Also, is it an EE?
