    Those that get pink combs at 5-8 weeks will be roosters, pullets will remain an orange yellow for a few months.

    I'm thinking all pullets, but the barred rock might be a rooster (can't tell for sure, more pics would help if you could get some)

    I am not sure, but I think you have all pullets.

    Thanks! I was hoping for that. Here we can't have roosters

    The Rhode Island Red is the only slightly suspicious one for me.

    The rir has a dark spot on its beak but its comb is still pretty pale and it doesn't really have any waddle development
