    **Edited to add new and better pictures**

    I have 7 chicks, all about 4 weeks old. 6 are Speckled Sussex from TSC and the 7th is the lone survivor from my hatch.

    What are your guesses in regards to gender?

    #1 - definitely cockerel

    I'm seeing a lot of cockerels. 1 or possibly 2 pullets in the SS batch and you lone chick also looks to be a cockerel (look how pink his comb is already).

    Individual comb pics would help greatly!

    1, 4, and 5 are certainly cockerels. 2, 3 and 6 are pullets. And the extra chick is a pullet.

    Thanks for your input. It is really interesting to hear different people's opinions on gender. [​IMG]

    I finally got around to taking better pictures of everyone, so hopefully there can be more discussion!
