    New to owning chickens, was hoping someone could help me identify the type/sex of these 9 week old chickens. My kids daycare hatched eggs and we decided to take 4 of them home. Don’t know anything their breed or sex unfortunately. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 0E607676-75D8-4139-8DE7-2F5A6C72013E.jpeg 507D41C7-8D80-4D68-A8F4-3586A72799FD.jpeg C45CF123-3103-445F-B865-0EBA395E5E8A.jpeg C0FD0E2F-4649-405D-BC6D-8A4EDA2844DC.jpeg

    The 1st one is a cockerel ❤️
    And they are Easter Eggers or Olive Eggers

    We are new and trying to learn, what was the giveaway with the first one to make you think it was a cockerel and not a pullet?

    Crossbreds, 99% of classroom chicks are. Could be Easter Egger mixes.

    Are you thinking the same for this one (not the same close up as in the original post) and that it’s a cockerel as well? E357758C-9AEC-4301-B154-C6AD626BBFF4.jpeg

    Hmm the more I look at these birds the more confused I get. Can you number which is which? Also I may have been wrong about comb type earlier now that I'm staring zoomed in. Not sure.

    I really appreciate all of the help/input. My wife and I are kind of navigating through this blindly.

    No worries. So on these #1 is the one we were thinking cockerel on before. I'm not totally sure tbh with you but upon closer examination I am seeing possible rose combs not pea like I had originally assumed. In either case #1 appears to have a redder comb which is usually an indicator of males although at 9 weeks that's not a lot of development. Hang tight a few weeks and update us in about a month as they should start to have obvious sex specific feathering around that age. Welcome to BYC and chickening

    1 & 2 are cockerels. Red wing bars are a male specific trait.
