    well i usually look at the wings of all my birds and it works great for me personally if they are a few days old but if you could put pictures on here we could see?

    Feathers, wattles, comb, and legs...at least that's how I do it. [​IMG] If you posted pics that would help too. [​IMG]

    The pics you posted don't let us see them very well. Try to get head to tail, face from front also, and maybe someone with more experience will see you thread. Roster Red and Speckledhen are awesome. Hope this helps you

    The first pic looks like a hen because the wattle is so close to the head. The second pic~one perched on red feeder looks like a hen also. Remeber these are just guess's cause I want to help you. How old are they again?

    The first photo is a pullet, the third photo is a cockerel. I'll try to figure out from left to right which are cockerels and pullets in the brooder picture.

    K....the bird in the very back looking right at you which his face directed at the camera is a cockerel.

    The bird underneath the branch in the third photo is also a cockerel, as well as the one that's "hiding" back at the very back in the right hand corner but still looking at you.

    Individual photos would be awesome!

    What I look for is comparative size and redness of the comb. In birds as young as yours seem to be, you would mostly be looking at size. Cockerals will have combs that develop much faster and grow larger faster than hens. The pullets will have very small almost miniscule points to their combs for quite a long time.

    I'd say the first one is a hen and the second a rooster.....
