    How old are they - about 6-8 weeks?

    Number 1 - roo for sure - leghorn?

    Number 2 - looks like a red sex-link pullet.

    Number 3 - pea comb - looks pretty red for 6-8 weeks, IMO - I'd say roo.

    Number 4 - can't see the comb well enough to really tell, but might be a RIR pullet .

    Pretty peeps!

    I'm not great at telling, but my guess is that at least #2 is a pullet [​IMG]

    I'd guess that #2 and #3 are pullets. The first definitely looks like a roo, not sure on #4.

    Just guessing, but...
    #1 white leghorn roo
    #2 red sexlink or production red pullet
    #3 looks just like our gold laced wyandotte pullets (our GLW roo had a big red comb and wattles even at only 4 wks).
    #4 ?

    1 is a roo. I would guess 2 and 4 pullets. 3, I can't say because I haven't seen enough pea combs, but it is pretty red.
