    Will you guys help us? At this point I think we have one rooster. This is the chick in the first two pics. The comb is developing much more than the other 2 RIR's. No combs are noticeable so far with the ameracaunas, but I"ve included some pics of them as well. Thanks!!

    They are approx. 7 weeks old (I think)

    I'd say the first is a cockerel and the others are pullets.

    I wouldn't rely on that method.
