OK Ive driven myself nuts trying to guess! I think I have one roo but then he looks the same shape in body and gets bossed around and eats last normally. Ive had them since a week old and they all grew at the same rate.
They are light sussex (dad) x orph x leghorn mix (mum) and from what Ive read those breeds the girls have large combs as well?
Hopefully the pics are an alright size. They got snotty with me so I couldnt get side body views.

At ten weeks they ought to have a pretty prominant comb on a roo esp. straight combs so I'd guess they are pullets. Unless you have a very slow maturing male. with the multiple breed crosses they are its just hard for me to say the sexes for sure, maybe a couple more weeks it'll be a little more defined.

They sure are pretty - I especially like the back feathers on #1.

I think these are hard ones to sex. They have bright red wattles (which my pullets did not have till much older), but on the other hand, they have small combs.

As for the age; They probably would not have had many feathers at all if they were 1 week old when you got them - maybe just their wing feathers & possibly a few more feathers at the shoulder.

Yes they were half fluff half feather crazy looking things when I got them.
And I think they are cute, well not so cute when they manage to get in the lounge and poop everywhere

they seem to think they own the house. So heres hoping all four are egg layers to make up for it.
