    We have 5 bantam chicks and are fearing a disproportionate number are male. There are 2 Pekins, approx 5 weeks old; an Ancona approx 7-8 weeks; and 2 Langshans also 7-8 weeks.

    I was hoping for your opinion on their sex. I hope I have provided enough details in the photos that follow...

    Many Thanks
    Lucy

    I think your white pekin is a pullet. Your second pekin looks like a silkie to me [​IMG] I would say its a pullet, but they are hard to sex. All the rest look like cockerals. Good luck!

    Ah yes - the brown one must be a Silkie. *She* was walking around outside today and I noticed she has five toes.

    Those two White Cochin pullets are adorable! [​IMG] (Pekin)
    The Partridge Silkie, who knows? [​IMG]

    The two Black Langshans and the Ancona are all roosters.
