G'day,
I have 5 light Sussex 2 isa brown 1 welsummer and 1 barnevelder. All are just over 6 weeks old. I am almost certain only one of the light Sussex is a rooster, but I want confirmation before I get rid of him. The 2 isa browns I have no idea and the welsummer and barnevelder look like girls to me but I am just guessing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If the ISAs are genuine, then they will be female as they are sex-linked. That is the females are brown and the males white. Of course if they are bred from an ISA mum crossed to something else then that's not the case.

Yes one of the Sussex is a Rooster. I'm sure you know which one.

The Welsummer and the Barnie are female I think.

Sorry I should have mentioned they are not genuine isa browns ( even though that's how they are advertised). Here is another photo showing all of the light Sussex
