At two weeks old, it's pecking order behavior. And both cockerels and pullets will do it. Not an indicator of gender at this point.

So as they're getting bigger, the white one has puffy cheeks like the two striped EEs. The two dark chicks have no puffy checks. The red sex link chick is progressing the slowest of all and is just now finally starting to show some feathers while everyone else have almost full wing feathers.

So here are some pics now. They weren't very cooperative.... Best I could get. They're about 12 weeks old and I just don't know. I'm afraid I have 3-4 rooster when they all are supposed to be hens.....
