    OK, got some better photos of my 4-week old chicks. I have my suspicions, and would love to know what ya'll think too, as I am new to chicken world!

    Cassie and Jump are definitely pullets (due to their coloring) - the others probably are too, but you need to wait a couple more weeks and watch their combs. If the combs are still small and yellow at 6 weeks, then you have pullets.

    Interesting! I know Jump's coloring is more pullet-like, but s/he's the only chick I have with a comb getting decidedly pink/red. Is coloring or comb more decisive in a BR?

    They all look like pullets to me. And Cassie looks like she's wearing spectacles! ;-)
