    We're going to sex some EE's! I'm convinced that there are a huge number of cockerels from a batch of 20... let's see what everyone else thinks?

    Here's how it works: I post the pictures of chicks 1 through 20, and you reply with your guesses for each. Just because we can't know for sure just yet doesn't mean it isn't fun to guess.

    They are EE's from an unknown hatchery, and we were told they were 5 weeks (though they look more like 6 or 7 to me).

    Happy hunting [​IMG]

    Oh my, sure hope those are not your only chicks. I don't see anywhere near as many pullets as the others do. Sorry.

    Me either. I only see #1, #6, and possibly #16 as pullets. The rest are cockerels from what I can see in those pictures.

    I can tell better if I watch them for awhile and actually see them develop, but here it goes...
    Pullets1, 4, 6, 7?, 9, 16, 17, and 20
    Roos2, 3, 5, 10, I'm getting conflicting feelings on 13 & 14 they have roo tall feathers, but their faces look pullety, 15, 18 & 19
    Be sure to let us know who's who
     
  8. I think your pullets are 1, 6, 16, maybe 20
    We have 48 straight run chicks, I know 4 of them are boys but rest I'm not so sure. I hope you have better luck

    #1 and #6 Pullets
    #16 maybe a pullet
    The rest are definitely cockerels.
