    I got pretty good pictures of three of them, pullets or roos?

    1. "other" white one, hoping for a girl, but hes starting to look more like a roo??

    My guess is 1-Rooster, 2-Hen 3-Rooster.

    Man, if you're right, that means at LEAST 3 roosters out of 7 chicks. Not really what I was hoping for. :) But it is what it is! Maybe I will just go back to the feed store and try for some more when these guys get out to the coop in a few weeks?? Wonder if I can talk my fiance into it. :)

    I think the fat one is male, if they are 4 weeks. There is pink and growth in the wattles.

    They are either 4 or 5 weeks old. So all male?!

    It's hard to say on #3. I wouldn't bet my money on that being a male, but other pictures (from the side & top) would help.

    I'll try to get some more pictures tomorrow. Can't guarantee that it will be the same chick :) I have three that look exactly the same to me!

    Don't know if these help any. I am pretty sure this top one is the same as 3, not sure about the second picture. I'm sorry, not very good at telling them apart!

    The wattles look really big to me. All my cockerels have really big wattles and combs. And Rhode Island Red Roosters have big combs.....by the way, cute guinea in the background of pic # 1!
