These are the first chickens we have owned and I don't know how tell if they are males or females. Can someone tell by just looking at them? They are between 5 and 6 weeks old.













Thanks

Thanks, they could be a little older, I purchased them when they were about 4 days old (so the store owner says), but I pretty much thought the first one was a rooster. I wasn't sure about the others. I know one of the reds has a short yellow comb, so I'm thinking that's a pullet. But one of the black ones, the comb seems to be black? Any suggestions?

Here are some more close up pics.











This last one is the one I think is a rooster, it runs full speed at the other chickens, but is not aggressive, it is also bigger then all the rest. I know it's considered a black production chicken, but when it was smaller it had white under its butt, and its chest, and you can see the white in its feathers in the chest, anybody know what it's parents could have been?
