    I really do hate to say it but I see roo in all of them.. but then again it could be the lighting. I see quite a bit of redish orange in the combs, and at such an early age it's quite uncommon for a pullet to have. But I would just wait and see. Wait until about 5-6 weeks old and you should be certain whether or not you have hens or roosters. Post a pic when they get older and you should get a lot of replies giving you a for sure answer. Hope this info helps!![​IMG]

    Thanks everyone! I'm anxious because I'm relatively close to neighbors and dont want a Roo disturbing them. I'll wait a few weeks and see what happens. They all change daily so hopefuly in a couple of weeks ill have a definitive answer [​IMG]
