    I went and picked these chicks out yesterday. 3 Swedish Flowers and 2 FBCM (from GFF lines if that makes any difference)....and 2 CCL chicks but those are sure pullets. I'm hoping I picked pullets, all of them had smaller/paler combs than the others in the pen that were obvious cockerals. But still, I feel like I always win the rooster lottery :confused:

    FBCM #1 (ignore the messy garage full of boxes, it's the quarantine room)
    I think there's some fermented food on "her" wing I need to clean off. I think about 5 weeks. Comb has no pink.

    FBCM #2
    Tiny wattles looked flushed from handling. This one is 6-7 weeks?

    SFH #1
    Smaller than the other 2, I think around 6 weeks? All of the SFH's had decent sized combs, some quite large and red. I tried to get the smallest, palest combed ones :rolleyes:

    SFH #2 and 3
    7 and 10 weeks I think? The comb and wattles are yellow to a pale pink, they're not as red as they look in these pictures.

    She said I can exchange if I end up with any cockerels, which makes me feel better. Do any stand out as pullets or cockerels?

    Any ideas? I have a few better pictures of the two Marans (hopefully). It's so gloomy and rainy here so not much natural light. And they have food on their beaks lol

    I posted a few of the others in the Swedish Flower Hens thread hoping someone would have more of an idea.
