    Hello everyone, I have a couple of pictures of my new and first flock. 2 production reds and 2 barred rocks. They are sold as 90% pullet and they will exchange of one turns out to be a rooster. I am thinking 1 of each sex for each variety but I am not sure as it may be too soon to tell.

    The Reds are 2.5 weeks old and the BR are 3.5 weeks old.

    From the top down- "Princess, Big Black, Tammy Jr, and Lucy.

    I think Princess may be Prince :)

    They are too young to be able to sex at this stage. Post some more photos when they are 6 weeks old.

    I thought that was probably the case.

    Thanks everyone!

    Alright, the 2 Prod Red chicks are really close to 6 weeks and the BR are 6 weeks or more.
    Please let me know what your thoughts on them are. I still lean toward 1 and 1 of each gender on both breeds. My guess is the bottom 2 are male. Their combs are pretty much double the size of the top 2, but I don't know if that means anything.

    I would like to hear what you experts think.

    Thanks!

    I'm thinking pullet on both Barred Rocks. The 2nd Production Red looks like a cockerel.

    I'm thinking Pullet on all. Both barred birds are definitely female. If anyone is male it's the second red bird. It has a fair amount of comb, but honestly not near the size or color I'd expect from a cockerel at this age.
