Any guesses on gender? I'm leaning towards all pullets but one, but that may be my wishful thinking and naïveté.

Here is the one I believe is a cockeral, and I could tell at 2 weeks. He had more of a comb then than the others do now, plus he's three weeks younger! He is currently 4 weeks old.


Here's one of my 7 week olds

I'm definitely agreeing with you on this one. ☺ I would say #1 is a cockerel and all the rest are pullets. So far, my 2 little MF cockerels are super sweet!

If the rest are 7 weeks old then they all look like girls. Boys would have wattles and big red combs by that age. They are so sweet.

Agreed. My 8 week olds have had prominent red combs for over a week or two now. Easy to distinguish sex.

I'd say that 4 week old is a cockerel. You'll know for sure very soon.

One cockerel out of 5 chicks is some really good luck. You need to play the lotto. I have 17 mille chicks and 11 of them are cockerels! Ugh.

Oh good! I'm so glad to hear that I finally have one breed that is mostly pullets! I was very hopeful that was the case when my little Roo became so distinguishable early on that the rest would be pullets. I also have two 7 week old porcelains that's I am convinced our pullets because they have no comb whatsoever. I find it highly ironic that out of my seven straight run birds, only one is a roo, but out of my four easter Eggars and buff Orpington's that were supposed to be pullets, two are Roos.
