The first photo is of the youngest chick (born mid August) and is my definite boy. I put him in for comparison. They are all bantams.

I think there may be one or two pullets in there
The smooth frizel which looks like it may have aruancanas in it looks boyish .
Best grow them bigger to tell the cross might be making it hard to tell.

OK time for an update, I culled the boy in the first photo but I am now having great hopes that the other 4 are actually girls! So please tell me what you think :) I will post photos below in stages. They are now 8-9 weeks old. I look for the comb and wattle development in my gender assessment. If you make your decision based on the wyandotte feathering, please share your knowledge! Thanks
