Absolutely don't take my word for it I can't see clearly, and would be wrong a lot even if I could. But you can tell what birds have more comb development at this age, and if they also have thicker legs and are more "cut" or "ripped" in their muscular development, that's a cockerel for ya.
Thanks for the input! smile.png

Oooh it would be (difficult but) fun if you posted pics in the same order so we could see how we did on the quiz wink.png

I think in 2-4 weeks you will see more roos popping up - do you know what breeds you ordered  or are them  barnyard crosses?

I got them from a friend, who hatched them. They're supposed to be marans, ameraucanas, wyandottes, and buff orpingtons. Whether they're pure or the parents all ran together and the chicks are crosses of those breeds I'm not sure. I did get the opinion of someone else in another thread i started that the crested one looks to be a marans/legbar cross. I know my friend does have Legbars that she breeds, so it's definitely possible.
