    In my hatch of six, I am looking for second opinions on three of them--all pictured below. They all have the same rooster father, full EE. I know it's still a bit early, but if I can single out the Roos early on, then it's easier not to get attached. Thank you for looking and offering your opinion!

    #3 Poppy (RIR mother)

    And for comparison sake, this is Max. He is Poppy's full sibling from the same RIR mother. He was born with a red down and Poppy with a buff down.

    I think all three look like pullets.

    I agree, they seem like they are all pullets for now. And thank you for including Max as a comparison. :)

    I was going to guess male, female, male... [​IMG] But I'm not much good at this.

    All three look like females to me, too.

    I hope you're right! I hope they "stay" pullets. Thank you all for the input.
