    All are 5 weeks. I'm guessing Chicks #1 and #2 are boys.

    #1 has a very pink comb (since week 31/2)
    #2's comb has the same shape, wider at the top, 3 rows w/ peas in the middle but not pink in person. #1 and #2 didn't get tails until recently.
    #3 & #4 have narrower combs at the top and the feathering came in differently and much sooner.
    #4 is my runt. She feathered a little quicker than 1 & 2, still doesn't have a tail and is tiny.

    What do you think? I'll post two pics of each.

    Chick #1 (I think roo)

    I do think Chick 1 is a roo but not sure about Chick 2, looks kind of like a pullet and the others look like pullets too. Just not sure on chick 2, but chick 1 loooks like a roo.

    Yay, I hope the last 3 are really pullets! Still, I hate to have to re-home any of them, they are all so sweet [​IMG]. #1 chick/roo is very friendly (little skittish, but not bad).
