Hey all - I’ve been lurking for awhile and thought I’d go ahead and post my own sexing question!
My kids each picked out 3 day olds from a barnyard mix at fall fair.
I can’t seem to find any obvious signs of a rooster in any of them so am beginning to think we are either very skilled, very lucky, or I’m delusional. Not great pics of all of them unfortunately. Feel free to give thoughts on breed mixes as well!

Sigh, I may have to admit my spouse was correct with Luna
I was told when we picked them out that the black chicks likely all came from their Giant Jersey rooster who was at the fair showing, and is strangely friendly. Luna seems to have inherited that trait so I do suspect jersey! The crested legbar could make sense though

If that is the case on him and he is a Black Jersey Giant mixed with a Crested Cream Legbar and if you were planning to keep him, he would probably pass on a green egg gene.
