    I bought 6 straight-run chicks about a month ago figuring SURELY I'd get 3-4 hens in the mix. They're now about 5-6 weeks old and I'm starting to think I may only have one girl. For sure, I have two roosters (big red combs already) but I'm on the fence with these 3:

    Chick #1--
    S(he) has a fairly small single point comb, but it's starting to turn pink.

    Chick #2--
    Small, but pink comb and wattles

    Chick #3--
    Small, but pink comb and wattles

    Are they too young to tell by the point of the feathers yet?

    Any predictions would be appreciated! :)

    The first one is a Dominique rooster, the second appears to be a Speckled Sussex rooster and the third a black Australorp pullet.

    I'm thinking 1 & 2 are cockerels and #3 needs to be watched another week. Not sure on that one yet.

    this. I'm leaning toward roo on that last one but not a hundred percent. Another week or so should tell.
