    HI, can you help me figure out what the sex is, for my babies. They are about 8weeks 3days old. Can someone explain about the bumps on EE. Two has a lot of little bumps. One has a small pea size bigger one and not much of another one. Thanks.

    The cones my barred rocks were about the same size until about a week ago.

    I was wondering if they were mostly roosters. Chick 3 is definitely a my favorite one. I was hoping that would be a female, although, I thought it might be a rooster. Thanks for replying.

    Both Barred Rocks, very definitely roosters. I'd say all the EEs in your pics are also roos. I never have an Ameraucana (close enough) with red in the comb at that age that isn't male.
