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

2,3, & 6 are cockerels. 1,4, & 5 are pullets

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?
