Well my 3 youngest babies are 6 weeks old today. I am thinking one pullet, one definite roo, and the other one I'm not sure yet.

Chicks A, B, and C in order

Chick A is the leader. Always first to eat, first to greet me, and keeps the other two rounded up.

Chick B I'm pretty sure is a pullet because she's dainty and has little gray comb. She has had a rough go, my dog pounced on her and then just a few days ago she got stuck in a sticky paper fly trap. So her feathers have taken a beating.

Chick C is growing a pink comb and waddles.

C seems very much like a cockerel, but I would wait another week to see how much more it's comb and waddles grow. The other two don't show any signs other than being pullets.
