    These chickens are about 5 weeks old. I would like to get some insight as to what sex they maybe. Our county only allows hens, so we'd like to prepare if they are roosters. If I can get some correlating information as to why you may think it is a rooster/hen that would be great also!

    They are all pullets because their comb isn't big at all and a rooster by now would have a comb 1/2 to 2 times bigger and it would have wattles hanging from the bottom of their beaks and the comb and wattles would be red and on the pics there didn't seem to be any wattles and the combs look pink.

    The first 2 look like Red sex-link pullets, the solid red one looks like a Production red pullet I believe.
