    Its too early and combs on young chicks are not an accurate way to sex, but on #6, I do think the barred rock is a roo from the large headspot.

    Quote:That doesnt always work either, wing sexing has to be bred for and it these birds are from a hatchery, it may be possible, as my Buffs and SLWs that I got from a hatchery could pretty well be wing sexed ( though I did have the hatchery sex them and kept the sexes separate, and the pullets grew longer wings and the males were shorter) But if they arent bred for it it wont work, like my Speckled Sussex and most of all the other breeds I raise myself, some will grow longer and some will grow shorter, but when they grow out there will be some of both sexes and the wing feathering rates has no correlation with the sex of the chicks in this case.

    Last year the most aggressive one of the bunch (silkies) turned out to be a pretty little hen [​IMG]

    When I hatched my Orps, there was a blue chick that was the largest of all the chicks and had the largest comb. I thought for sure it was a rooster. Turned out to be a pullet.

    But I'd say you have a 50/50 chance of being right. [​IMG]
