    I picked up 3 pullets and 2 bantams from TSC in Hiram GA on March 17. My kids and I no longer watch tv, we watch the chicks and try to figure out what breed and pray they are indeed pullets. Any help identifying and sexting is greatly appreciated. These pics were taken today, which makes them all 3.5 weeks old if they were indeed two days old (that's what we were told) when purchased. First time chick owner so all feedback is much appreciated.

    1. White Cochin (too young to sex, watch comb for first signs of gender)
    2. Gold laced Seabright (too young to sex, watch comb for first signs of gender)
    3. Rhode Island or Production Red (looks like a pullet)
    4. Production Red or Sexlink (looks like a pullet)
    5. Barred Rock (with all that comb and white in the barring, looks like a cockerel).

    Those are my guesses, anyway. They're very cute!

    Thank you both! What am I looking for on the white Cochin comb?
    There is a yellow comb.

    I'd agree with funky.

    On that Cochin, you're looking for redness to the comb before say 12ish weeks. If that happens, it's a male.

    I'm in the same boat. I just hatched these two. Maude on the left is growing a comb and waddles while Bean on the right is showing nothing. Maude is mean and not jumping on Beans back, very aggressive. Thinking Maude might be a Marvin instead. So confused.

    Thanks guys. I have suspected he was a rooster since it was a few days old. Very aggressive right out the egg. Time to send him to his new home in the country. =)
