    I have 6 5 week old chicks and i know 2 are probably roosters. The 6th is inside with wry neck and I'm pretty sure that one is a pullet.

    The first two look like pullets, the second to I agree with your guesses, also the last one is looking like a cockerel.

    I will cry if i have 3 cockerels. No clue what to do with them all. Im going to keep the polish either way and maybe the frizzle. We'll see how 2 roosters do.

    The white Easter Egger is a cockerel for sure. It's too early to be sure for the Polish. The last Easter Egger might be a cockerel, that comb is pretty pink at only 5 weeks old. The first looks like a pullet for now, but that can change.

    You could either try and give them away or cull them.

    Could you get a better photo of it? I'm not so sure of what it is now.
