    I have never been known for my Patience . My BCM are 4 weeks old and I am dying to know what sex they are, any guesses would be great.

    #1 I think is a Rooster, He is very outgoing, and always perches at the edge of the box as soon as anyone enters the room

    Give another week and a half then you should know for sure.

    #1 and #3 Look like ROOs... The pics are not that clear...a side shot and top view/ close head shot would help....#5 Might be Roo

    My BCMarans roo had a very pink then red comb early(3-4 weeks), but I don't have any pullets to compare yours with. I'm seeing what looks like a lot of roos, too.
