We have our first new chicks. We adopted 3 hens last year and are now venturing further.
We purchased 3 RIR, 3 GLW (although one has a single comb), and 4 white leghorns from TSC at the end of February.
Any input on if we have any pullets would be appreciated. The best pics I could get are below.
All of the leghorns look about the same as far as comb color, some have slightly smaller combs.

They are all about 10 weeks old.

Thanks

I see one RIR cockerel. It's possible one Leghorn could be a male so you'll have to watch it.

sorry. But the wyandottes and leghorns are definitely pullets!

Thanks! I know the pictures are not the greatest. Best I could get on my phone with those quick little buggers.

We were hoping for at least 5 pullets out of the 10, so it looks promising. A friend may want 1 of the RIR cockerels, we'll probably keep 1 around as well. And the other...well he will probably end up in the frying pan. Mean little guy anyway.
