    Yeah I would have to say they are all girls, I have 10 BR roos and they are 4 weeks old and they already have bigger/redder combs than yours do!

    100% sure thats a pullet.

    She is dark and the BR roos seem to be alot more Lighter. Also see that shade of black on the frounts of her legs that is also an indacation of a girl.
