New and need help. Pullet or Cockerel???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello. I have 2 chickens in question. 10 week olds. Help! Pullet or Cockerel?

What is the chicken in the foreground? The ones behind are clearly a hen and a rooster. But what is this one? Comb still bright...but not as bright and developed as the rooster.

Two roosters behind this one. But what is this one? Pullet or cockerel?

Last one in question. Comb seems pink-red and not as big as its flock mates. But I got a barnyard mix of Orpington and Amerucauana so I don't know what to look for. Someone please advise. Thanks.

I'd say both are cockerels - buts it's hard for me to tell with Easter Eggers. Lol.
