    One obvious cockerel, two most likely pullets. The other two I can't decide. Sorry for duplicate pictures, it was hard to get pictures when they were playing and eating. The behind picture shows the size difference in obvious cockerel and two others [​IMG]

    It is hard to tell from those photos and they might still be too young. I think I see one pink comb, anything at that age with a pink comb will be a boy, the girls will stay an orange yellow color for a few months.
