    Still a little to young but I would have to say they look like pullets give it another week or two. The second and third may be roos.

    I would wait for a little while. I've had quite a few banty's that I thought were gonna be roo's that ended up hens! I have one right now that at 8wk I'm thinking is a roo, but not sure because my cochin at that age had a big comb and she's definitely all woman!

    They all have some rooster qualities. And what breeds do you have there?? They're absolutely adorable!

    roos. Also depends how old. The only 100% way to know is if it crows or lays an egg! [​IMG]
