    Ok got the good camera out today and got a decent pic of my BO (the one in the middle) who I"m pretty sure is a pullet. I have one other than looks just like "her" but the rest, look like the ones around her in the pic. I'm really hoping I have 2 because I gotta say I"m loving my BO.

    Can't tell on the one on the far left, ducking into the underbrush. The center bird looks to be a pullet. The bird on the far right is a cockerel. It's all about the comb and wattle development. There are other signs too.

    They are all supposed to be cockerels (its was a frypan special) but I think 2 girls snuck in there! I know the other 2 are boys, just wanted to confirm my suspicion on the "girl" in the middle.

    Yes so far she's looking to be a pullet. Lucky!

    What age are they here? If you want any other reassurance, the BO on my picture <<< is 11 weeks old and is a pullet.

    They were 5 weeks yesterday. Which is why I guess we can't be 100% because there can be late bloomers right? But these two look so much different than the rest, even the ones that don't have a lot of red, they at least are tinged that way. Pretty much all but the two I mention (one of which is the center one up top) look exactly like this guy. Who is very obviously, a guy.

    I agree that the one in the middle is a Pullet.
