I need some help sexing some chicks before I sell some of them. The first chick is a few days older than the rest. He is nearly five weeks old and the other chicks are nearly four weeks old. I am doing a part 2 as there are 10 chicks, once I am finished ill paste it here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1071938/araucana-chick-sexing-part-2

Please note: These are Australian birds and are not rumpless!!!

They're a bit too young yet, maybe try again at 8wks and pictures of their combs. Chick #1 maybe Roo as is #3 but they're ALL pretty colored birds. Hope you'll repost picture in a few weeks with the combs.

I had these sexed today. #1 and #3 were actually very strong pullets and it looks like we have 1 or 2 males!
