    My best guess is these are between 6 weeks and 8 weeks. I have never had this breed so I was surprised how fast the combs and wattles came in....anyone have a bet on Roos or pullets?? [​IMG][/IMG]

    First picture didn't come through. First two chicks (that show) are definitely male. You're gonna have to post pictures of the last one in a few more weeks.

    I think that to the farmer that I got them from still says it's too early to tell but those are some really big comes don't you think? Even if I'm off on the aging an their a little bit younger there still really matured and the biggest one has started trying to fight my other chickens so that makes me think even more so that he's in roo.

    Yeah, those combs and wattles are just too big for a pullet - even if they are older than you think.

    The light-colored (Splash) chick looks like your only pullet to me.
