    Ok I have read every post I can find and think I have 3 of the 4 SR chicks figured out but one falls into both groups. Here they are.

    Here is a pic with 4 sleeping next to Bobby(1). 4 is on bottom of pic.

    the reason I am asking is this 4's tail is bigger than 1&2 but smaller than 3's Feet smaller than 1&2 Bigger than 3. same with the comb. Also 4 seems to be getting white feathers on the chest and is not real submissive.

  2. Based on the enormous legs of #4, I would say it's a cockerel.

    I have been staring at the legs and feet of 4 since yesterday and went back and looked a original pic of 4. in the first pic its back toe kind of blends with its leg. Its legs and feet are about the same as #3's. Here are two more pics. Also In the pic with them sleeping I meant 4 not 3 i will edit it.

    I have one just like this with the whit feathers and I am having the same problem, everyone I ask says pullet, I have a thread called pullet or cockerel, take a peek. Just FYI my SS are 5 weeks, yours look a bit younger. Can you tell me what you think?
