    we think that we've got 3 hens and a roo. . . but would REALLY like help confirming this because we can't keep any roos where we live. they're all 6 weeks old.

    Polly, our white-crested polish...is he a roo? if so, will he start crowing soon?

    Buff (buff orpington, pic 2) and Lulu (Ameraucana, pic 2 and 3)--we're pretty sure they're female, but this is our first flock, we'd certainly like to know if you agree or disagree [​IMG]

    Lacey--hopefully you'll agree she's also female... we got here as a gold-laced wyandotte, but she doesn't look like what we were expecting. will she get browner when she's older or does anyone recognize her as a different breed?

    as far as the polish I have no clue, I have a mottled houdan and still haven't figured it out for sure, although I think he's a roo cause he was part of a pan fry special. The other ones, though, all look like hens!!! I may be wrong, but I know my roo started looking like a roo a month old....I knew he was a he when I bought him, he was just so sweet!!!! I'd say hens!!!!!

    I have a black white crested polish slighly younger then yours, she has more of a poof and no red on her much smaller wattles, no comb growth either. So I think you have a boy there. Your buff orp looks like a pullet.

    Thank you so much for posting! I was about to post and ask what my chic (6 weeks) was but she looks so identical to your Ameraucana I don't need to ask.

    I order 25 "Heavy Assorted Pullets (Nice assortment of brown egg breeds)" so I didn't even consider the ameraucana breeds. Though now seeing your girl, I am sure several in my flock are. I'll take some pics of some of the other girls and post to see what they are...

    I also think #1 is a roo and the GLW will get it's lacing as it gets older, don't worry. I'm sure she will turn out beautiful. And I think all the rest are girls.
