    Hi I have 4 eight week old chicks and I was wondering what gender they are. They were sold to me as pullets but I'm pretty sure one is a rooster.

    This one is named Jeremy Lin (Aracauna)

    The last one is Lorp Derp (Black Australorp)

    Thank you for the help

    As far as I can tell the 3rd one kind of looks like a pullet and so does the last one. The last one actually looks like a Ameraucana/Easter Egger mixed with a Australorp (Australorps don't have beards)

    I'm not an expert, but I'm not seeing any Araucanas. They all look like Easter Eggers. The first and last have a lot of red in the comb for pullets at only 8 weeks old. I wouldn't panic yet but if it turned out they were roos I wouldn't be surprised either.

    First off, I believe all of your Araucanas are EEs. Your Australorp is a mix (Australorps are not supposed to have a beard/muffs). I'm not seeing anything that shouts roo on any of these birds yet.
