Boys on all three? The golden laced stands tall, but the others really don't. The little houdan seems to like people and is pretty mellow. I thought they were 4 1/2 weeks but them turned 4 weeks yesterday. I tried to sex them at 1 day old.

Oh and wattles and combs aren't red at all.

For now I'd say all pullets. I know comb isn't completely reliable but my roo is about 4 weeks and his wattles are dark red already and he is acting just like a rooster. Yours don't seem to dark in the pics. Give it a few more weeks to be sure. You can also try the polish thread. They probably have more experience for the breed. smile.png

Also, her tail feathers look a little different to me, but I didn't get a photo of them yet- I'll try tomorrow.

I agree all pullets.  Have a quick gander at http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1047803/barred-rock-late-bloomer-or-rooster/20 in post 22.  Madisan was awesome and sent me pics of her baby BR boy and girl.  (and she posted updated pics later in the thread too)

18 layers of various breeds and 8 'tweenager' chicks... and 4 little F2 Super Blues that just hatched.

 

RIP Gus, our beautiful Super Blue rooster.  May you live on through your beautiful chicks!
