    More info - I may be getting some when they are 6-7 weeks old. Will that be old enough to sex them and if so, if anyone could share pics of birds around that age, that would be great!

    Sebrights like most chickens can be sexed around 5-7 weeks old. Just look at the comb and wattles and it should be fairly easy. [​IMG] If you still can't tell then just post a pic and we'll help you figure it out. Good luck! [​IMG]

    Here are my sebright hens who are a little bit older then 6-7 weeks but they'll look pretty much the same.

    Ok, good. I am hoping to be able to pick out all or mostly hens, of course. I will be going about an hour or so away, so I need to be able to pick them on the spot. But, I will probably post pics to be sure. Then, if I have more roos than I want, maybe someone will want to trade...
    They are all gold laced, and I would like some silver, but again, maybe someone will trade. or maybe I'll just love them all..​
