    I was wanting to know if anyone could tell which ones are females and males. I have 8 of them and 3 have small combs and the other 5 have large ones. They are mostly RIR/White Leghorn mix but there are a couple full Leghorns. They hatched out the third week of March. I plan on selling some of them sometime but would like to keep a few. In the first picture the one in the front is the largest and when he/she was a month old it would act like a roaster by starting fights. I wasn't sure if it was a large hen or roaster.

    definetly, the ones with the larger combs are boys. My four LH girls are about the same age and look like the few girls you do have.
