    thats not true for every breed. Some like EE take a little while to develop. Also EE cockerels usually have 3 rows on pea comb, like the one in picture.

    I decided to just hold on to them a bit longer. Though I don't see chicks 1 and 3 being pullets ever lol they have had major comb development, with thread pea rows, and they are turnin pink already.

    I believe that 1 & 3 cockerels and all the rest pullets.

    I am not 100%, but your guess looks like what I would have guessed. I am in the same situation with my 2 week old Lavender Ameraucanas. Please let me know what you end up with and I will post pictures of mine for opinions soon. [​IMG]

    For now, only the last one appears to be a cockerel.

    I can't see well so I am not sure but I would guess you have a fair few boys there. It is still early so they will change ant hopefully become more obvious. Maybe more pics close up of comb and full body pics? Mine are 5 weeks old now and still hard to tell though I know for sure 2 boys and 1 girl, and two unknown still (thinking one roo and one pullet). I will post new pics soon for opinions :/)

    If anyone was curious, my guess on the sex of the chicks was correct.

    These two are pullets

    These two were cockerels that were rehomed.
