    First two look like cockerels, and three and four look like pullets.

    That was what I thought! Too bad, Papa and Baby are really handsome Brahma mixes. I will probably have to rehome them. [​IMG]

    I'm going to go against the grain, and say that they all look like pullets to me. My cockerels had much larger combs/waddles and noticeable saddle feathers at 12 weeks old.

    Thanks, everyone! I am just glad the pekin/cochin is a girl! She is my sweetest girl, always flies up to my lap for love. The EE, she is not so friendly. But she will lay pretty eggs one day![​IMG]
