    Your first chick appears to be a pullet. The second chick I think is a rooster, due to the reddening comb. It also appears to have red patches on its wings, another indicator of a rooster.

    Yay, the grey one is my prettiest so I was afraid it was a boy. The EE is named Daisy Mae, so I might have to rethink that one lol. Ive rehomed 3 of 7 barrd rock mix roos so far and the rest by this weekend.
