    Yes I can try. Its hard to get them to stay stil. What exactly do I need to take a picture of so you can sex them. I only have 4 so I may try to get my child to hold them to take better pics

    I'm not seeing any obvious cockerels, but it is too young to be sure.

    Right now, they all look like pullets, but it is too young to be sure.

    So its been quite awhile since I've been on here. My Astralorps ended up being 3 hens and 1 roo. Sadly we lost one of our hens bc it escaped the run and a dog got it. :( However, we have expanded our chicks from 4 to 28 and we have quite a variety now!!!

    That's too bad you lost one of them :( 7x as many chickens as you started with in only a few months, that's impressive!
