    Can anyone give direction on telling my roosters from the pullets. My birds are close to 5 weeks old; I started with 50 pullets and 5 roosters while cleaning the boxes they seem to all got mixed and now I don't know which is which.
    Any help would be appreaciated
    Thanks

    The cockerals should have large red wattles and a much bigger, redder comb at this point.

    I notice some have a little red in the comb. Should only be 5.
    Don't see any wattles as yet??
