    I think you have 2 girls golden comets, if I am not mistaken the boys would be white ( or yellowish white when in fuzz). Pretty, all of them.

    Your Golden Comets look like pullets to me. It is too young to tell gender with your Barred Rock.

    I looked up sexing barred rock chicks, and going by what Speckledhen says, I think you have a pullet.

    Your 2 Golden Comets are pullets. Gold Comet is one of a number of labels under which some hatcheries market their Red Sex Links, and Red Sex Link male chicks are always whitish or silver. I agree with BantamLover21, the Barred Rock chick is too young to sex accurately.

    The barred looks like my young barred roosters. Although it's too young to tell for sure. Good luck :).

    That barred rock looks identical to a BR chick that I got, it turned out to be a big rooster, I mean BIG. Unfortunately, the foxes we have on are property had kits and took 2 chickens (I seen two foxes with one chicken each running for cover) ,him being one of them.

    The barred rock is too young to tell- but when it starts getting it's first feathers check to see if they have a lot of white on them- this would mean it is probably a roo. PS: You let chicks walk on carpet. What if they poo?
