    I'm certain the one with the red comb is a cockerel, but am not 100% on the other four. Anyone want to take a guess at genders?

    #1 - large red comb and crowing (definitely a cockerel)
    [​IMG]
    #2 - mostly black with lace pattern wings and black head, no comb at all (pullet?)
    [​IMG]
    #3 - mostly black with splashes of white on wings, has red flat comb area, has shiny green tail feathers, and shiny blue in hackle feathers, but is shaped like a female (any guesses?)

    #4 - white with tan and gray back and wings, just developing a yellow single row comb now (pullet?)
    [​IMG]
    #5 - all black with green and blue shimmer all down back and tint tail, just developing a small yellow single comb now (any guesses?)

    Thanks for your response. I'm really not sure about #3 either. I thought it was a roo because of the red comb area, and it has sparred with #1, but it isn't trying to crow yet and has a pullet shaped tail. Perhaps I simply need to be a bit more patient...
