    The 2 black ones looks like barred rocks. Not sure about sex although I'm leaning towards cockerels with the lighter barring and size of combs.

    I agree. Black are males. Thinking other one is too.

    Why are the males? The seller told me they were girls.

    Barred rock males tend to have more white than black. Also, their combs are starting to protrude. (I could see the combs better in one of your other posts.)

    How do you tell? If they are male? What is the differences between males and female chicks? Thanks

    Males have larger combs and wattles. In Barr Rocks, females legs are black and females have more black then white feathers. Some breeds have other traits that can be identidied at different stages.

    I'll be in the barn!
    Two blacks are Barred Plymouth Rocks. It's really too soon to tell a definite gender. The yellow/brown one is a Golden Sex Link pullet.
