    Hi!
    We are new to being backyard chicken parents and we need help determining what gender we have. My thought is we have 4 cockerels and 1 pullet :(
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    2 and 3 are male, the last one I would need a comb shot. Olive egger pullets in my flock have never been pink that young and the combs are always narrower

    Here's #2 at almost 9 weeks, aka General Tso [​IMG] . looking like definitely cockerel by the red that's coming in?
    Need to get some new pics of the others. Still looks like only 2 and 3 are boys from my thoughts. [​IMG]
