    I have five bantam chicks who are quickly growing, and right now, I'm pretty sure that I have one rooster, three hens, and... one that I'm not sure about. I'm including pictures to help you guys guess.

    This is Dixon, who I'm fairly sure is a rooster. He's the only one with a real comb and wattles so far.

    Here's Alaska, Raven, and Ruthie, who I'm fairly sure are hens. (If not, please let me know!)

    Here's Georgia, who I'm not sure about. Its comb is bigger and redder than the others, and it likes to fight with Dixon, but... I don't know for sure.

    If anyone can give any good guesses, it would be greatly appreciated!! [​IMG]

    Here's a quick way to tell: See the 1st one? His (he looks like a cockerel) comb and wattles are WAY more developed than the one below him.
    I think #1 and possibly #5 are cockerels
    And #'s 2, 3, and 4 look like pullets.

    Pullets have smaller combs and wattles (usually) when they are chicks. Hope this helped!
