    There are six chicks altogether . 4 are polish, one is a cuckoo and one (I'm pretty sure this ones a rooster) is a lavender.
    They are now 4 weeks old. I'm convinced 2 are roosters but unsure with the rest. Don't have much experience with this. I do know it's still difficult to tell but if anyone can see any clues please do share with me.
    Also wondering if Drax (the black frizzle polish might be silver laced? Not sure how that looks on a chick. Unfortunately the pictures aren't quite in order. They didn't stay in the order I selected them
    2 pictures of each chick
    1. Black frizzle polish - photos 1 & 2
    2. Grey frizzle polish - photo 3rd and 7th
    3. Black polish with white head fluff and solid black at the front of its fluff - photo 4 & 18
    4. Cuckoo
    5. Lavender
    6. Black polish, white with black pattern fluff - photo 5 & 12

    It's difficult to tell with the crested ones but I think the first black chickens and the lavender frizzle are roosters.

    1- cockerel. The spikey “Afro” (as I like to call it) is a main sign that it’s a boy

    6- a pullet I believe. It’s hard to tell.

    Can you take a side picture of all of them. The way they hold themselves is a good way to tell aswell

    Yeah thats my thinking too. Not sure about the others but those two I'm thinking roosters. Thanks for your reply.

    Act
    Ually this is just 3 chicks. 2 pictures of one. Two of the chicks are very simular looking makes it a little confusing. I may get some more side photos later.

    Hmmm. I’m not sure about the frizzle ones but the black and white I believe is a pullet
