    I have 4 like these. They are supposed to be pullets and I bought them from tractor supply. They're between 1-2 weeks but I thought the pullets would be red!

    And this bantam with feathered feet. The bantams were assorted so I have no idea what they are.

    If they don't start getting red soon they are most likely cockerels.

    This looks like an OEGB to young to sex though.

    This one maybe a Cochin or Brahma, if it has a straight comb it is most likely a Cochin if it has a pea comb it is a Brahma. It also maybe a d'Uccle but I don't see "puffy" cheeks so I don't think it is one.

    It (chick #1) looks to have a reddish head and back. If it was a roo, it would be silver/white/yellow in color. Since the ISAs are a sex-link for color, the reddish fluff means female.

    I hope they do get red. I don't need that many roosters and they were in the bin that said pullets :/

    What's an OEGB? This is my first batch of chicks so I'm new!

    Those are the breeds I was thinking! What is the difference between a pea comb and a straight comb?
