    A simple method of sexing BR chicks is black chicks = female Grey chicks =male. Just a rule of thumb for the PBR.

    Ugly is (I think) a pullet

    Penny is a cockerel, no doubt about that

    Morticia is a strange-looking BR (she may be another breed) but is indeed a pullet

    BR chick should all have white spot on their head, pullet will be more round spot..they could be line of br ,not near what a br should look like. 1st look like way to much white, but like a male ,just not that much, 2 nd pic don't see a white spot....

    I am trying to say all my BR chicks dont have white spots some have more then others Some have none at all. I hatch and ship lots of BR chicks its one of our Sought after Birds. I know my birds quality and lineage so there definatly not mixed.as we only buy Birds from Show Stock reputable breeders on the farm here. and I have black BR chicks Who have no white spots does that make them mixed even though they have been seperated in there own breed pens since aprox 4 months old?

    If your chicks look like the first two pics.....i would say something is wrong in their background.......
