    These are the chicks that I came to get from you MissP! Aren't they big and just lovely?!?!

    If I haven't lost track of time, they are 12 wks old now and I still can't decide whether they are pullets or cockerels. Please help!

    Stacey, they all look like pullets to me. The only one that has any hint that it could be otherwise is the dark blue one (wattles slightly larger), but the males usually have decent size combs by that age. I think they are all pullets! Here is Suede at 8 weeks old:

    Oops, the link is weird. Sorry, will try to fix it. Photobucket changed something and messed up the links!

    ***Had to go to each picture, click on properties and copy that. All their direct links are messed up on Photobucket. Grrr.

    I agree with Cyn. I'm sure you have at least two pullets, but the last one still has a chance to be a cockerel.

    Oh gosh! Look at Suede! Yes, I think you all are right... They most definitely are all pullets! [​IMG]

    Well my fingers are crossed that at least one is! [​IMG]

    Diesel's comb was still much larger, even at 10 wks., than my dk. blue.

    I guess a few more weeks will tell. [​IMG]

    Quote:Thank you! Of course they would be, because they did come from MissP's stock, after all. [​IMG]
