    I purchased a bunch of chicks at Easter time (a few earlier) and am still trying to figure out what some are and if they will lay or crow. Some help would be appreciated.

    I don't remember when Easter was, how old are they?

    I'm leaning toward the first three being cockerels and the last one a pullet, but age and better pics would help. Profile shots, of the bird standing naturally including legs are best, plus a comb shot.

    Easter was the 20th of April I think. They are about 12/13 weeks probably. I agree.. first three are cockerels and last one a pullet.

    That was what I figured too. Any thoughts on breeds? I got these in a hatchery special from Cackle. So....

    Thanks for the help
