    Alright my last batch of hatched eggs are getting old enough that I think its getting close enough that we can make a fairly accurate guess. I already have my guess which is one roo and three pullets. THese are all mixed breeds, the white one has a mo hock on it's head show a little bit of polish. The others all show very different in types of breeds, and colors. So here they are I want your guess.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    What's their age?

    I would, like you, guess roo, hen, hen, hen. but since the white one is the one with the more developed comb/wattles, and all the black one are less, it might also be the diferent genetics resulting in different maturation rates.

    My guess it roo, pullet, pullet and roo. Is the first picture the oldest one? How old are each of the chicks? The last one is cool lookin, a bit of black on the comb.

    Edited: I only said roo on the last one because of the wattles.
