    Chick 1 is the smaller with darker feathers.
    Chick 2 is the larger with darker feathers.
    Chick 3 is the larger with lighter feathers.
    Chick 4 is the smaller with lighter feathers.

    Chicks 2 and 3 look like boys to me, just going by the size and color that's already coming in on the combs. 1 looks girlish; 4 kind of looks girly.

    Chicks 1, 2, and 3 all have red combs now. My only hope for a pullet is chick 4.

    Can anyone tell by the coloring if chick 4 is a pullet?

    Also, is chick 3 a Blue Wheaten?
