    I have 14 6 week olds. My sister is taking her 6 next week, so we would like to have an idea of how to split them up. They all seem like roosters to me. All this posturing and chest bumping. Do pullets do that? Anyway, I'll just start with the Easter Eggers today. Any definite Roos?

    I'd say everyones guesses are right. 3 and 4 def look like roosters. I looks just like my hens.
