    I would have said a couple of the other SS were roos until I saw the last one.. Now I'm going to say all but the obvious one are pullets.

    I agree with you on the BLRW being a male

    I think both your ameracaunas are pullets.

    Yah! Well, I hope my ameracaunas are girls then I will be able to keep both definitely. I think bird 3 /might/ be a boy. I say this only because his/her tail is not developed much. But maybe its a manly girl.

    Quote:Maybe, but it has the smallest comb out of all four SS. I would assume that it's a pullet before the others. Single combed birds are easier to sex based on comb sizes.

    Of course they could hit a growth spurt and explode into men [​IMG]

    How old are these chicks? That makes a big difference around this age.

    4 and 5 look like the only cockerels repost pics when they are around 11+ weeks for better guesses to [​IMG]

    #4 and #5 are pretty definite males. the rest look like pullets at this point, the ameracaunas look to be girls, BUT they can be sneaky!
