    Are all of the chicks 5 weeks? The gold laced Wyandotte in the third pic looks like a roo. I'm on the fence on the other two. Those combs are pretty pronounced and red if these guys are only 5 weeks old.

    On the EEs, I think the first is a roo and the other two are pullets.

    Thanks guys for the help I suspected as much but was hoping the EE roo was a girl so very pretty maybe I'll keep him as 1 of my roos so I don't have to butcher him.
    I was also hoping the 1 wyandottes was a roo because this chick got hurt as a 2 week old and hasnt been right since lays down alot and walks funny. so if it gets big enough it will be freezer wrapped. poor baby......
