    Any new guesses on if these 5 girls are still girls? Thanks in advance! I'll be crazy until I know for sure!

    Dolly - 5 weeks. Plymouth barred rock.

    Amelia -- 4 weeks, Wyandotte

    Betsy -- 5 weeks. Rhode Island Red

    Helen -- 4 weeks. Buff orphington

    So I thought that every week I'll add new pictures because if you're like me, you're constantly looking at other people's chicks pictures trying to determine the sex. Once I know for sure, I'll let everyone know how mine turned out! Plus, it's fun showing them off. :)

    Dolly has the darker coloring of a barred rock pullet, but that comb is a little too pink at that age, in my opinion. Also, the stance shows a cockerel to me.
    Amelia's comb also looks a bit too pink to me.
    Betsy- no guess
    Helen- An uninformed guess of pullet

    EDIT: Looking again at Dolly & seeing ThePRfan's bird below reminded me how red our boy's comb was at that age. Changing my guess to pullet for Dolly.

    Stop torturing yourself lol. I would wait another month before asking myself as I've done it twice before and twice before everyone got it wrong at this age :)

    Just enjoy them for a little longer before getting on the boy girl merry go round :)

    They all look like pullets for now, but it is still too young to be 100% certain.

    They all look like pullets to me, except for perhaps the Silver Laced Wyandotte.

    Thank you all! I emailed the hatchery I got them from and he thinks Dolly is a male but told me to wait 2 weeks and he should be able to tell for sure.

    No one's screaming rooster yet, but give it another few weeks to be sure, especially on Helen. I'm wondering what's up with that bird anyway, Orpingtons are supposed to have white legs so I'm thinking it may be mixed or ?
