    This is Bea. She's about 13 weeks and I think I've got a little roo.

    This was taken at about 11 weeks.
    Bea-Dominique, Olivia-dark Cornish, Gwen-golden sex link, Edith-barred rock. Any of them look suspicious? Thanks!

    That's a pullet. I have a Dominique and they just have longer combs and waddles, and the feathers don't look too long or skinny.

    I'll be in the barn!
    Looks to be all pullets.
    One tip-your Golden Sex Link is a definitive pullet. A male would be solid white :)

    The bird in the first set of photos is not a Dominique. It appears to be a cuckoo marans as it has a single comb and feathered shanks. Dominiques have rose combs and clean legs. I would also say that it's a cockerel from that comb and wattle development.

    What about this one? She's supposed to be a barred rock, maybe about 10 weeks.

    Yes, that one looks like a hatchery barred rock. The dark barring usually indicates it's a pullet but I'd be a little concerned about the size and pinkness of her comb if she is just 10 weeks. One to keep an eye on, but I'm saying pullet for now.
