    I got this straight run of chicks and hope they are old enough to sex now. I know my Buff Orpington is a cockerel, but unsure about the rest. Thank you for your help!!

    Wilma the Welsummer (or maybe Olive Egger) 9 weeks

    3 Silver Laced Polish with Specked head feathers, 6 wks (Polly, Pauline, Penny)
    1 Silver Laced Polish with All Black feathers, 6 wks (I think this one might be a guy since his head feathers are longer and flop over more (Paul)

    I think you easter egger and olive egger are both male. The GLW is a pullet and the rest I do not know enough about to even try and guess.

    That was my guess as well for those 3, based on what I read and on their behavior.

    Stella I'm pretty sure is a girl. Polish look look like cockerels except for the one with the very black crest might be a girl, given her puffy crest. She also gives off girl vibes as well (body language and expression) but watch for streamers in that crest.

    Silkie is a boy. Wide slightly developed comb.

    Everything before the golden laced Wyandotte is a cockerel. Not sure on polish.

    Disagree. I got my Silkie at 8 weeks, and her comb was the same size. She's laying now so is definitely a pullet.

    Here is an updated picture of the Silkie, now 13 weeks. Has those tail feathers but definitely no wattles.
