Hi I have these guys that I need help with, all except the wynodottes are Xbred.

1 & 5 are about 13 weeks old whom I always thought 1 roo, 5 pullet now not 100%.

2, 3 & 4 are about 11 weeks. I always thought 2 & 4 were roos now not so sure about 4. I'm pretty sure 3 is a pullet just want a second opinion. Thanks

2 is definitely male. 1 looks male but I think you still have a chance. 4 also looks preeeeettty male, but you have a bigger chance of a girl than with 1. 5 is a girl.

I believe 1, 2, 4 are boys. Not sure about #3, thinking pullet. 5 is a girl.

EDIT: I just reworded my whole answer. After reading it over and over again I thought I sounded really confusing.

2 & 4 look like Roos, possibly #1 too.
Mine didn’t really act like Roos til about 4 1/2 to 5 mos, 1st they acted like Roos then they started looking like Roos. It was my 1st batch of youngsters of those breeds so I now know the Roo attitude happened 1st, the legs being longer were noticeable 2nd, then the saddle feathers were noticeable 3rd. I'm no expert though, still learn something every day! It's funny when you see your young chicks on a daily basis you don't notice these little changes. It's good to take photos that way you can go back and look at photos a week apart versus how they change daily. I love my chicks, they grew so fast. My Wyandotte Roos had a growth spurt at 5 mos, they are huge now, I hug them every morning, so far so good, staying friendly with me, but they started fighting eachother at 5 mos & had to be separated...just sharing what may happen, hope you have other sections ready just in case
