    I see one roo and two pullets...what are their breeds? Some take way longer to develop, and some are super obvious early on.

    I think bird 1 was a roo and the others were pullets. Do you have any idea of breeds?

    #1 is definitely a boy, but you already know that [​IMG]

    4 weeks is very early to tell, but I'd say the second is female and the third is also male. Wait another 4 weeks and you should know for sure on straight-combed chicks.

    ETA: The one in pic #2 has pretty noticeable wattles for 4 weeks, so it might also be male.
