    They look very happy prancing around in there! Can't help you with sex, pictures are too far away and they still look pretty young. It wouldn't hurt to take some close up shots of the combs and entire body from the side if you'd like to let us guess ;)

    Rudy looks like a boy for sure. When I ordered from Ideal I got 20 male production red packing peanuts- yours looks just like them.
    The Brahmas are tougher, I can't see their combs. Mary's comb looks pretty raised, so it could be a boy. The others look pretty feminine to me. Some comb shots would help. Are the Brahmas bantam or standard- straight run or sexed?

    Actually, hold onto Rudy. Now that I think about it, my packing peanuts combs were that big and red somewhere around 4 weeks, your reds comb doesn't have any color yet so I could be a lady....
