    Need patience. Much too early to tell depending on what breeds they are.

    They appear a little young to sex accurately. When they get a little older (6-8 weeks), I would post a clear photo of each individual chick. We should be able to help sex them then.

    Thanks. They are black Australorp. And they are three or four weeks old...

    Also need individual pics upclose in profile in natural light. I will tell you that the one up front and to the left looks like a cockerel at this point.
