Hi. I'm new here, although I've loved reading people's posts ever since I started raising chicks over a year ago. I am wondering about the sex of my six week old chicks. I'm not sure of the sex of the Plymouth Rock, the Buff Orpington, the GL Wyandotte, and the Rhode Island Red. Any help would be appreciated hugely! Thanks.

I am no expert but from experience I would say the Rock and RIR are boys, and your GLW and Orpington are girls.

Agree - based on combs, wattles and feathering rate

Thank you WallanPoultry and Sue55. That is also what I thought. I really love the little boys too, so will be sad to have to part with them.
