    I still get mixed guesses (from experienced chicken friends) on the lavender orpington and the black Australorp. The other chicks, 2 positive are pullets and 2 we're pretty darn sure.

    They look 50/50 to me of being cockerels/pullets. I wouldn't say for sure either way right now. May just have to wait another month.
