    I read on another post where the good folks here were able to sex 10 week old chickens by looking at pictures. Mine are 11 weeks old. Any help would be appreciate.

    They all look like pullets to me. The only one I would possibly be concerned about is #4, since the color pattern looks a little blotchy (watch for red patches coming in on the wings-- that's usually a male trait in birds that color). However, the way they all look now, I think they're all females.

    Hi, [​IMG]
    I agree, all females. you can also check the feathers on their hackles ( neck feathers). If they are rounded at the ends, they are female. If they are pointed at the ends, they are male. Congrats on your pullets!
    Best,
    Karen

    #1 might be a male, the rest look like females to me.

    Thanks everyone! As expected the idea of mostly pullets is a good thing.

    Thanks again, Charlie

    I agree with Lozuufy. Light barring may be a male. What are the breeds of these birds? Are they back yard mix, or specific breeds?

    Mixed breed, except for the grey/black striped ones, they're pure bred. The other ones are part Austrolorrps but not exactly sure what else.

    Thanks, Charlie
