    No! I can't have that many cockerels! Not allowed in my town. I was thinking I only had 3 roos. There are 3 that are very obviously boys but the other questionable ones don't have waddles yet! I'm holding out hope for ones. Am I crazy? They are still only 4 weeks.

    Are you all guessing just by the comb? Just curious what else you are seeing. Thanks

    Based on the comb, my guess is 1, 4, 6 are pullets. Maybe #3 as well? The rest are definitely cockerels.

    This is my BCM (far right) at around 4 weeks for comparison. To be honest we had NO idea he was a roo until he started crowing.

    Wow! His comb is even fuller than my most obvious cockerel!

    Yeah. I'm going by comb and sometimes posture. They seem a bit young right now, so I would hold out for longer. Sometimes they pull the ol-switcharoo. It seems pretty amazing to get that many cockerels.
