    What do you think? I caught one crowing today, and it was one of the more pullet-looking ones. :(

    How old are they? I see a lot of comb, but depending on there age, this might not be a definite indicator. Still, they all look like roosters to me, but Sebrights are kind of difficult to sex because you can't go off of the feathering, so don't lose hope yet!

    I'm not sure exactly how old they are, but I got them about 8 weeks ago. I would guess they were about 2-3 weeks old when I got them, which would put them at 10-12 weeks.

    I wasn't sure if Sebrights develop faster than large fowl. I also figured that the two with rose combs were pullets because they were darker (that was my excuse I made up for HOPING they were pullets. Haha.). Not sure why one has the straight comb, though. I thought the lady's all had rose when I saw the parents. [​IMG]

    They looked like this when I got them.

    They all look like boys :( Sebright hens usually have really dark combs and wattles until they're about to lay. My golden Sebright pullet is 24 weeks and her comb is still black.
