Our five chicks are 9 weeks old and we're curious if it's too early to determine the sex. We were also curious of the breed of the non-buff orpingtons. Thanks for your help!

Thanks for all the responses! We are really hoping that the first one is a hen because she is the nicest and has the best personality out of all of them!

You know, that does look like a roo, but I have two hens I swore were Roos and they turned out to lay eggs (to our shocking surprise). Ours crow at any point shortly after being fully feathered. Pathetic practice crows. We had one late bloomer (my experimental barred Ameraucana) born Jan 21st just now starting to crow.

Well you were all correct in you rooster assessment! We were out on the deck, enjoying our coffee, when Maybelle ( the first picture) let out a rather loud, undeniable crow. I hope he stays sweet!
