I'm still struggling to guess girls vs boys. And the breed! (Pretty sure #1 is part roadrunner!) Was told australorp, but don't think that's correct. Help!!!!

    My “part road runner” is an Easter egger! It’s funny that someone else describes their chicken the same way. I am no expert on breeds or anything, but you sure have some cute chickens!

    Forgot to mention, I think they're about 5-6 weeks old.

    All are roosters if they are 5 - 6 weeks old

    Come on, someone show up to tell Val what is what with her birds. I've got an idea on one but not going to say anything yet.

    I had one chosen as female. But I must have known that wasn't right so I stayed silent.

    lol, you're getting better Robin. The only chick that I'm not 100% sure of is the one labeled #1 but I'm pretty sure

    That's the one I thought might be female. Now I'm excited that maybe, just maybe I can say with confidence yes or no.

    Of course that won't hold. I'll forget some crucial clue and be blown out of the water again.

    Really, #1 might be female? That's the one I was leaning towards male?? He/She is very bossy and is the first to chest bump in the morning.

    They all chest bump when they are young, they are just getting the pecking order in place.
    Like I said though, I'm not 100% sure on that one. Someone more familiar with crested breeds might be able to tell.

    I believe #3 could be a pullet but the rest are roosters.
