    I still can't tell with these few. None are crowing yet. All are 10 weeks old tomorrow. Any thoughts?

    I say that the first and fourth pics are roosters. That is solely based on the hackle feathers, they look pointed in comparison to say picture 3.

    I'd say they are pullets. Here are my 6 week old RIR's (at least I think they are RIR's [​IMG] ) Their combs are far more pronounced than your's and their wattles are starting to really show.

    I'd guess roo on 1 based on hackle feathers, and on 4 based on comb comparison to pic 3.

    When do Amerucana roos start to get a more pronounced comb? #1 is more dominant than the others, and loves to puff out it's neck feather, but has almost no comb. They are 10 weeks old, so I thought I'd be seeing more of one by now...
