    Interesting names -- Do you have a pilot in your family? [​IMG] Here are my guesses based on both comb size and coloring.

    Alpha: most likely a pullet

    Bravo: definite pullet

    Charlie: looks rooish - watch for red/rust colored feathers to appear on the wingbows - if they do, he's a roo

    Delta: most likely a roo

    Echo: definite pullet

    Foxtrot: most likely a pullet

    Golf: not sure yet - could go either way

    Thank you everyone for the replies! I was hoping for at least four pullets, this makes me very happy!

    PS - There is no pilot in the family, but I do computer support over the phone so use the phonetic alpha quite a bit. It seemed nicer than naming them Thing 1 through Thing 7 [​IMG] Now that I am pretty sure which ones are pullets, some of them will receive real names!

    Hm... I agree with Lothiriel except that I think Alpha will show himself to be a cockerel soon. Maybe it's the lighting but I'm seeing a hint of red-brown emerging in the back and the comb is rather pink for 6 weeks.
