    I was told they are girls an that they are white Plymouth rocks the other bit of info I can offer is my other three were picking on the one that looks like a rooster. Is that normal?

    Definitely looks like a cockerel. Sometimes chicks will pick on each other. As long as no one is getting hurt it should be OK.

    Starting to look like a cockerel, but I'd wait another week or so to be for sure.

    This is the chic that i think is the rooster. Its bigger now and the comb is even more pronounced. Do you agree?
