I'm curious what you guys think the barred rock and speckled sussex might be, gender wise?

I'm thinking the buff and splash ameracauna are pullets but I'm really new to this so I guess I'm not confident on any of them 馃槀 I have two smaller splashes too. I'm hoping the barred and the speckled are girls, especially if our frizzle thing is a roo. What do y'all think?

Ok so I have experience sexing chickens just from like looking at them and I can tell you that your bard rock is probably going to be a rooster and you're like Brown white one looking at the development of all the other ones that you believe are hens I also agree with you on that I would say that they would probably a rooster but looking at it it could also be a hen with those kind of chickens you don't know until they get a little bit older. I do believe that your bard is a rooster though by one the way you looks to the kind of like enlarged spur scale and there the bigger comb than everybody else which is a key factor on roosters.
They're all pullets.

Oh that's awesome! I picked them from a a straight run section. I can't wait for them to grow up. They're going to be so pretty.

I want the red and white one. Don't care if it's a girl or boy.

She should be gorgeous when she's grown! I love the look of speckled sussex.
How many does this make now? Are you going to lie and say you're done and won't get more? Because everyone that says they're done really don't mean it and get more.

馃ぃ Started with 8, intending to only get about 6 and have a total of 12 in the future...but I currently have 15. 馃槀 There's still a few breeds I'd like to add in but we aren't done with our coop revamp yet. I'd love to add two seabrights in just because I think they're adorable birds.
LOL Have you seen chicken math mentioned here? That's what it is. Just one more turns into three. And the addiction problem? We've had a couple ask for help but we just laugh and tell them they're on their own.

Yes chicken math is REAL! Hahaha and I love it.
I have a question for you, do you think these youngins here would be okay out in the run with the older hens? The older ones aren't even at the point of laying so we call them teenagers 馃槀. They've been in a cage in the run with them for 2 weeks, so they've seen them. But I'm concerned about their size.
They should be OK. There will be some tusseling but if no blood is drawn it's normal. Give the youngins a place to hide.

If they free range at all peeps being out helps then integrate easier.
