    Bought 6 chicks from a local farmer on Oct 20, 2014. 3 where 3-4 weeks old, the other 3 where 5-6 weeks old. The breed is Blue Orp, Jubilee Orp and Brada mix. 2 of the older chicks have good size combs but the 3rd does not. The same for the younger ones - 2 have combs the 3rd does not. None have attempted to crow., but I would like to know if anyone can tell me if these are roos or pullets. Thank you so much.

    The two birds pictured are cockerels.

    Both of those look like cockerels to me. My 14 week old BBS orp pullets have almost no comb and absolutely no wattles.
