    Thanks

    I'd guess the ones in the 2nd and 3rd pics are definite pullets, and possibly the one on the left in the last pic. The first picture I'd guess cockerel, and maybe cockerel for the one on the right in the last picture, but can't really tell since the bird moved right at the wrong moment... [​IMG]

    And to answer your question about combs -- the combs on cockerels generally get redder at a younger age than on pullets, but when a pullet starts to lay, her comb gets red too.
