    Ok, well if this changes anyting, they are all bantys, buti just dont see any signs of rooster except for the combs and wattles on them, they are 7 weeks old and should have some of the roo feathering by now right?

    I also agree with the others. Mine are all around 8 weeks old now, except for my australorps which are around aroud 14 weeks. The roos all have redder combs/wattles at a younger age, and only now are my australorps starting to redden a bit as pullets.

    You asked about the size of the combs/wattles. From my understanding, it depends from breed to breed how fast/big they grow. My BLR wyandotte large fowl also grew large fast, but my barnevelders did not. But they're definitely cockerels. Maybe because theyre all bantams they grow slower too? Kinda would make sense. Hope this helps [​IMG]

    I see that your cochin and braham need to trade combs....and they do look like cockerels...

    I agree with the others- the light brahma looks like it has some laced saddle feathers coming in- plus the comb/wattles. Sorry!!
