    Hi, we've recently acquired 4 more cuties to add to our coop. They are about 4/5 weeks old - Perkins I think? I can see why having chickens can be come an addiction lol, I'm so in love with them but I can't tell the males from the females? Any help would be great thanks.

    I have learned the females feathers are more rounded on edges and the feathers by wings grow more towards back. Males feathers are sharper on ends and by wings grows straight down. I found it might be 3 months or so when you can see this.

    These babies look fairly young, might need to wait longer to see.

    First one is a pullet I'd say. Rest look like cockerels to me. They aren't pure Pekin "Cochin in the US". Look like Silkie crosses.
