What is the giveaway? Comb, stance, etc and is that different with each breed? Sorry I'm really new at this. Only started with chickens week before Easter. And I am LOVING IT!!!!

If you are referring to the "back chick" being the one toward the back, fartherest on left, that is a leghorn, one closest to front kinda in the middle is a speckled sussex.

cockerels have bigger and faster growing combs and wattles. and they are far more redder than a pullet

they also have larger shanks (legs)

eventually as they feather they will get pointy hackle feathers (pullets rounder)

they will get flowing saddle feathering (pullets don't)

and a lot of the cockerels get a lovely Squirrel Tail (a tail that is large are fabulous)

hens keep a small tail

peacomb chicks cockerels would be identified by the redness of the comb rather than the size as the go red but stay small for at least 6 months

Thanks for the information! I'm pretty sure this fellow is a rooster even though "He" was supposed to be a "She"! I can tell you one thing he sure has a "Cocky" attitude! Walks around standing proud like he owns the coop. Also he loves to be admired, but you better do it from a small distance, get any closer than I got in this picture and he's gone!
