    This is my first experience uploading pictures so I hope this works. I'm trying to find out from experienced chick people whether you see any roosters in this bunch. Golden Comets roosters are supposed to be light/almost white. I don't see any that are really obvious.

    What do others think?

    They look like all pullets.

    Even the one in my daughter's hand, all the way on the left in the first photo? That is the only one that seems much lighter to my inexperienced eyes. (Thanks for responding!)

    Kinda hard to tell from the pictures, but the chick resting in your hand may be a roo'. Usually the girls are much darker than the boys.

    They look like pullets to me too. Mine are girls and they all had the darker stripes down their backs. I think the boys lack the darker stripe and are all white. Hope that helps!

    Perhaps another angle will help. It seems to depend so much on the particular lighting!!

    Is there a lot more white on the winds than red? Pullets will be majority red with some white and vise versa for cockerels.

    The wings look pretty much the same on all of them. They all have stripes (different degrees of darkness). The only thing that seems different about the one is that the head is a much lighter shade of yellow.
