    These chicks are 9 weeks old, mixed breeds, blue egg layers. I'm sure the one grey one is male! Thoughts anyone?

    At nine weeks right now I'd vote the white crested one looks female, pics 1,4, and to the right on 5,6,7. The white with a pea comb looks male, 2,3,center 6. The 5 pic with the little barred roo on the left, the others look like girls.

    I agree, The barred and the white crested bird look like boys.

    Actually the others said the crested one looks like a female, the other whiteish one is probably male. No doubt the barred one with large comb is a boy!

    The second picture of the white one is probably a male, he looks really tall for his age. I had a mix breed just like this and he turned out male. When he is 4 1/2 months old see if he develops curved feathers. That's what mine did, hope it helps!

    Can't figure out how to edit my thread here, I want to add new pictures the chicks are now 12 weeks old. The two white ones are questionable? one is crested the other has cheek tufts.
