    I'm hoping all my chickens are girls. What do you think?

    The only one I question is Elvis. All the other ones appear to be pullets. Elvis still might be.. do you have a picture of it's comb?

    Thanks. Elvis' comb is the same as Glinda and Tiger Lily's. Should I still try and get another photo?

    Right now, I would say that you have all pullets but to keep an eye on Elvis. I'm sure someone else will chime in here. [​IMG] All beautiful & unique!

    Elvis is the only boy. His color pattern is male, and his comb is male.

    Hope that helps!

    Here's another shot of Elvis. S/he's the biggest of the flock. I got them from PhiladelphiaPhlock.

    I'm iffy on Elvis. I'm leaning toward boy, but the comb isn't very big and red, and that reddish on the shoulders isn't the dark rust color most boys get, it's a softer red. So Elvis may still be a girl. You'll know for sure in a few more weeks. The boys' combs get really big and red really fast!

    And those legs are awfully skinny! Hmmm... Looking at the 2nd set of pics, I'm leaning more towards girl now, but still a lil iffy. lol
