    Here are my four 6 week old chicks. The first three are full EE, and the last one is EE/Lavender Orp mix. Can you help me confirm which are pullets and cockerels?

    6 wk old chick. Pullet or cockerel? Don't know the breed. Got the eggs from a man who really couldn't tell me the breed either. Rooster he has looks exactly like a big Leghorn and hens are regular size and white also. The combs of both chicks are still pink and no signs of wattles yet. I am thinking definitely pullets. They are identical, except for Martha's dark grey marking on her feathers. What do you think experts?[​IMG]

    Yours looks like a pullet to me!

    Maybe post in a new thread, so you can have a subject line that will pull people specific to your question.

    Hermione and Maxime are looking like possible cockerels to me. However, it is still a little young to tell for sure.

    I'll second that, for six weeks their wattles are too wide and red to be hens, so I'm 90% sure! need more pics to be certain

    Thank you all. I was thinking pullet for Lily and Gaby and cockerel for Hermione and Max. Here are a few more pictures.
