    How many are there total? I was trying to look at the leg bands but I got lost ;)

    I see 2 cockerels and 3 pullets though, based on the leg bands or lack of....

    That first one, looks like a purple band, is a cockerel. There seems to be another cockerel without a leg bands but it might be my eyes missing the band.

    There are 3 pullets, 2 that have a yellow, and green bands, and one without.

    I don't know if they're all shown separately, or if you have multiple birds with the same colored bands, but I hope it helped :)

    BTW, good idea, using bands ;)

    Ok, yay I think I was able to distinguish them apart :D

    Ok, so the 1st and 3rd birds look like the cockerels, and the second, fourth, and fifth one look like pullets :)

    I agree that you have 3 pullets and 2 cockerels. I'm really not sure about no. 5, though I'm leaning toward pullet. I guess time will tell. [​IMG]
