    Thats great ! i was hoping to end up with at least 3 pullets.

    i figured 4 and 5 as well, but am unsure about the rest.

    What are you using to base your decision on between #1, #2 & #3. Curious because they look pretty similar to me and I have 3 SS chicks that I'm trying to figure gender on.

    I was going by combs but all but #4 look fairly developed to me.

    BTW - what was is their age?

    Thanks!

    Here are my 5 week old SS.
    I'm thinking:
    #1 is a cockerel - largest pink comb, large tail feathers, largest breast (? not sure what that is about)
    #2 -unsure- no tail feathers, no color in comb - pullet?
    #3 is a pullet - smallest comb but has more developed tail feathers.

    Thoughts?

    Praying we're right! Will have to let the cockerel go...bummer, but so glad they are not all cockerels! These were my first hatch and I'm way more invested in them than when I get them as chicks. ;)
