    Hello fellow chicken friends..
    I have 4 little ones I am trying to determine if they are little roos or little hens. They are 9 weeks old, so it may be too soon to tell, I usually wait until they crow or lay an egg, but thought i would try to find out sooner. The 2 lighter colored ones are Blue Laced Red Wyandotte and the darker 2 I am not sure, was told could be black true amerecauna, or could one be a Black Laced Red Wyandotte?

    Any way thanks for looking and offering any information.

    Chick two and three looks like roos. Waddles are more dominant on this two, and there combs are wide and looks like three rows of peas.

    I agree that chicks 2 & 3 look like cockerels with their red combs and wattles.

    I think the first bird may be your only pullet [​IMG]. I'm not positive on 2 and 3, but leaning toward cockerel due to the amount of comb and the redness. But that last bird is definitely male, only males get the red leakage on the wings like that.

    I also think the first MAY be your only pullet, the rest are cockerels.

    The first one looks like your only pullet to me, too.

    I think that only the first one is a pullet.
