    I have 4 chicks who are now around 7 weeks old. I think one of the Buff Orpingtons and my only Black Australorp are both roosters. The body shape of them isn't much different than the others but they both have very red combs :( thanks for your responses!!

    It sure looks like it to me, two males in that photo. At that age pullets o not have combs and wattles that big or that red. I hope that's good news but somehow I feel it is not.

    I will probably keep one, depending if they are friendly or not!

    Thanks I'm pretty sure the other Orp and the EE are pullets, they look exactly like my other hens at this age. And I am pretty certain the other two are cockerels yes! I will likely keep the Australorp because he seems friendlier so far! Thank you!
