What are your thoughts on the Amer. chicks?

How old are they now, Adam? Hard to tell from those pics. The best way is head on with this breed, IMO. If the comb is raised, very wide and you start to see the three distinct "pea" ridges, you have a boy. If the center ridge is the only one visible and the combs are still yellowish at several weeks old, probably a pullet. That first one's comb looks fairly flat. Can't really see the other one very well, though. I can post pics of known boys and girls at certain young ages, if you want. Maybe that would help illustrate what I mean.

Oh that would be great if you could post pics. I will take new ones and check my calender to see see exactly when they were born. I think we are going on 5 weeks, but I am not sure.

These first three pics are ALL boys at about 4-5 weeks old-that third one is Scout and you can see his comb is very thick, but not as pink as the other two at the same age:

These are pullets, at the same age as the boys above:
