    I have these little ones and I can't figure out if they are cockerals or pullets, I appreciate your help! oh and do u guys know if rose combs are dominant over straight combs?
    I think I know this one, but any ideas on breed as well?

    Number 1 is a pullets NH or Production Red
    Number 2 Pullet
    Number 3 BR Roo
    Number 4 Not sure but looks rooish, but is not as showy as I would expect a roo.

    How old are they? The pullet in number 2 is she near POL?

    Quote:chicken 2 and 3 were born outta the same hatch which was the 2nd or 3rd week in may, 1 and 4 are the same age which was roughly a month after.
    Chicken 2 is HUGE!
    I need to rehome the roos, but idk which ones to call roos. I would have thought I would hear some crowing from the BR, but I don't yet. I don't expect to hear a crow from the wyandotte mix (#2) since it took it's dad til he was 6 months old to crow.
    Chicken #2 stands like a roo, but doesn't show any roo like feathering yet.
    Chicken #4 I have called brother, but now I am not sure (sister passed away [​IMG] )
    I have an offer for the BR cockeral from CL, but then got 2nd guessing whether or not it was a cockeral at all.

    I was pretty sure that #1 is a pullet, but figured it couldn't hurt to ask. Kinda nice cause I had a wonderful hen that passed away last month that looked just like her.

    The rose comb is dominant over a single comb. They all look to be mixes.
