    I have several different chicks that I am raising and since I'm not familiar with tell tale signs of "hen or roo", I know this was the best place to come to get help! [​IMG]

    They are 8 weeks old and I have 2 Blue Andalusians, 1 Easter Egger, 1 Rhode Island Red, and 1 Buff Orpington. I'll list them and put my guesses.


    1. Rose - RIR - pullet?

    2. Smoky - Blue Andalusian - pullet?

    3. T Rex - EE - Pullet?

    5. Grey Goose - BA - Roo?

    Since there are two Blue Andalusian's the differences (not shown here since I didn't get a pic of Goose's legs) are also that Goose has thicker legs and lighter colored feathers.

    Thank you in advance!!!

    WOW! Those are some beautiful chickens!

    Rose is defiantly a pullet. Thanks for sharing their ages and lots of photos!

    Smoky looks like a rooster. He/she might have a big comb too.

    T-Rex looks like a pullet. What a cutie!

    Cyclone also looks like a pullet but I'd like to see what other people think.

    Grey Goose is a rooster. So handsome! :)


    Hope this helps!

    Thank you so much!!! I'm hoping that both of the Blue Andalusian's (Smoky) doesn't end up a he. We aren't supposed to have roosters but we have a couple of homes that we can send them to if that's the case.
    Thank you again!

    p.s. I have some 6 week old chicks I'll post later - would love your input again!

    Not totally sure about Goose. If his/her tail is the same length as smokey i would say they are all pullets. Love the names! So creative!!

    I would guess all pullets. If Goose is a cockerel, he is slow developing.

    Nice names. "Cyclone" - that's unusual. I like it.
