    Here are 3 of my 5 Dark Cornish that I would like to get opinions on. The large one on the right is (IMO) a cockerel, the other 2 smaller ones on the left are the one's I'm curious about.

    Here are the 3 cockerels (or so I believe):

    Here is the smaller one w/ brown on her - I assume she's a female at this point, or maybe hoping due to the beautiful brown in her!

    And here is the smallest one, smaller than the largest cockerel by almost half:

    The pictures aren't the greatest, but I can tell you the combs are much smaller on the 2 smallest ones (believed to be pullets), and the wattles are practically non-existent. You can see the wattles and comb of the white rock cockerel in the background - I know, this has nothing to do with the DCs, but I'm very proud of those WRs!

    So what do you think, 3 roos and 2 pullets?

    So you think the smallest one is also a cockerel? So the only pullet is the brown one?

    Hah, I wasn't even considering the color on that one - not sure why! Yes, that is correct, he definitely has a lot of flush color there. Well good, I'm glad at least one was a pullet, and the prettiest one IMO. Going to keep one male and one female to play with in some breeding experiments. Thank you for the help!

    Thanks, yes my username is what I painted on my coop when I built it - it's made out of an old truck bed topper, and the back hatch is where I check for eggs.
