    I'm guessing these four are girls, but I wanted to make sure. Sorry, these pictures aren't the greatest (especially of number 1). It's kind of hard when I'm not sure who's who anymore. I'll try and get better tomorrow.

    Here's the first one...

    Just in case it makes a difference, here's the one that I'm sure is a boy. He's got the best leg color of all of them, I'm excited to see how he turns out.

    From what I can see they all look like pullets. If I could see the combs better it would be easier to tell.

    I think they are all pullets! I one was a boy, I would think Scratch. I can see little wattles coming in, but that doesn't really mean anything! They are beautiful birds!

    Delawares can be particularly difficult to sex, I have had pullets that looked very much like cockerels until they got much older.

    Thanks. Scratch is the one I was wondering about most, but the other two that I'm sure are boys stood out a lot from the others.
