    I have some 19 week old chickies! I have 6 total, A home bred Blue Orpington x Speckled Sussex, a golden campine, a silver lakenvelder, and 3 white Cochins. I know 100% of the cochin genders. 2 girls and a boy. These three confuse me though.

    This is Hershey. I hatched this fluffy myself. S/he is a Blue Orpington x Speckled Sussex. This chicken is literally TWICE the size of all the adults. That is not surprising though as her/his father was the same size. S/he also has HUGE feet. It took me a long time to sex her/his daddy too. We didn't know he was a boy until he crowed. Hershey is not mean or dominant, but S/he is confident. Very brave and playful.

    Next up we have Dakota. This adorable little thing is a Golden Campine. S/he is my smallest baby, and very flighty. I think that's just a light breed thing though. S/he has tiny feet! Sorry the side view is blurry. Stinker would NOT hold still!

    Last but not least is Indiana. My Silver Lakenvelder. Very small feet, and VERY flighty. Indiana also is pretty mean.

    This is just for grins and giggles, but sometimes she looks like a black and white peahen! Haha!

    I'm not totally on board with the first 2 being pullets. I have to look at my Campines tomorrow and I'll post a pic of them if they are really different than yours.

    At 5 months of age (19 to 20 weeks), those are all pullets.

    Three pullets.

    The top pullet hatched in a female only color. Males would have a black chest and red coming through at the neck.

    The other two are very fast maturing breeds. If they where roosters, they would have much larger combs, curving tails, and hackle and saddle feathers.
