    I think it’s too early to tell for sure but for now I’d go with pullet since their combs aren’t that red.

    Edit to add: Also your poll is not set up right. It only allows one vote.

    Just some insight on them.Red sexlinks are chicks that can be sexed right after hatching.Males are all yellow while females have brown somewhere on their body,usually backs or wings.

    None have large/red combs so in my view probably all pullets but it’s still quite early to be certain :thumbsup
