I am 100% sure it is either a boy or girl. Nothing like a few months to help you find out. :eek:

Can you tell us what breeds they are, or are suppose to be. Also in order to tell we need head shots of each so we can see the combs.

1 & 2 could be brown leghorns, I called mine chipmunk babies.
3 & 4 could be black austalorps.
With all the different breeds and sub breeds now, you won't be able to tell until they grow up (and they might be crosses).

As far as sexing, the only accurate method is vent (anus) sexing. See the Wikipedia link for more details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_sexing

Good luck and don't feel bad if you can't figure it out until they are 8 weeks or older, it is not easy to tell when they are chicks.

If you look at their wings you will be able to tell. The ones with black spots are female, and the ones without are male.

One of their combs are turning pink and it's body is bigger when I found it most of it wing feathers was in and the other from the same patch of eggs is smaller then it does that mean anything
