    All but the second one look like pullets. The Buff's wattles are quite pink, so I'm kinda thinking cockerel there...

    The buff is probably a cockerel, the rest are pullets.

    I see a whole bunch of pullets. The Buff has the same size of comb as the rest, the only reason the wattles look bigger is because the bird is lighter and doesn't have a beard.

    Quote:Good point, Illia. Looking at that picture again and seeing the BR behind the Buff with pretty much the same color comb/wattles, I think they are all pullets.
