    Please see the following images. I am so confused on these guys.

    #1 Pullet light and cockerel dark?
    [​IMG]

    #2 My guess is this one is a cockerel due to its high tail

    #3 Pullet?
    [​IMG]

    #4 My guess is cockerel highest tail
    [​IMG]

    #5 My guess is both pullets
    [​IMG]

    #6 This one seems to be the heaviest so I am guessing this is a pullet

    How old are they? That will make a big difference in tendering guesses. For now, they all look like girls to me but I might change my opinion if you say they are a lot younger than I'm thinking they are.

    3-4 months max. They were 4 weeks old when I got them and I have had them more than two months I think.

    I sure hope that there is at least one cockerel in there.

    head shots would help, need to see comb and wattles

    Darn I am not at home. They all have tiny wattles starting and flattened combs. We had one with a pointy comb but it was killed by a larger chicken [​IMG]

    closer head shots would help from neck up showing the feathers around their necks and their combs. all of my chickens had their hackles coming in by now

    I sure hope you are right. That would make 6 pullets and 1 cockerel!
