    Alabama and Rocky are roosters, no doubt. I don't do silkies, so no idea there. No one else is really jumping out, but post again in 3-4 weeks if you're concerned about someone.

    Ok thanks! Which ones do you have a feeling about? Like I have been guessing about a few being cockerels, and I want to know if they are my same suspicions.

    Ok. Thanks. Yeah I was almost positive they were cockerels...I'm kinda worried about some of the barred rocks so I'll probable post on those again.

    The sad thing is that I ordered all females from a hatchery. 90% sexing guarantee...-.-

    wait at least another 6 weeks for them to reach 16 weeks of age....the welsummer is for sure a cockerel but i wont jump on conclusions yet till they reach at least 16 weeks of age and if my suspicions are right i would contact the place were you got them from and let them know

    Rocky and Alabama are both 1000% roosters.


    Your Barred Rocks are all pullets, Barred Rocks can be sexed by color. The males appear much lighter in color.

    Both Rhode Island Reds look like pullets as well.

    On the Hamburgs, both look like pullets to me, Lacey is for sure a pullet.

    On the rest of the Sussex.... Bella and April and Shawnee all look like pullets. Angel I'm rather suspicious of. Sunny and Rebel I'm pretty sure are pullets but I would love to see new pics in a few weeks.

    On the Silkie... I have no idea. Silkies are very hard to sex.

    Look at the underside of their wings. I've forgotten which is which but one sex has 2 rows of feathers and the other one row. If you have an adult chicken, look at the underside of it's wing and go from there. Kind of chick has nothing to do with this sexing.
