    I am guessing all of them are cockerals because of the feathers and pink combs.

    The blue/gray one with red wings is a definite roo. It looks like the one above him has saddle feathers coming in, so roo also. Going off how pink in the face the rest are in comparison, I'm thinking they may all be roos, sorry. [​IMG]

    Have you determined the difference yet? We are having the same problem. The one we thought was a hen, has been crowing all weekend!

    Quote:Not really. I thought they were all pullets. We have a total of 6 EEs. One is a definite cockeral (not pictured), as his comb is very developed compared to the other five. The gray/blue one pictured, I thought was a pullet because even though he/she has a defined comb compared to the others, it's nothing next to the other roo's. None are crowing yet. I have two BR cockerals that are the same age and BOTH are crowing! Pitiful little crows but crows nonetheless.

    Can anyone tell me what breed the white/black chicken is? Is it a Delaware?
