    I'm asking the same question about my 5 week olds. The combs look similar to mine, so I would guess pullet, but I'm new at this. Good Luck!

    I'm saying girls too. I can usually spot a roo by 3 weeks.

    My guess is the dark one is a roo - standing more upright, thickness of the legs. I would guess the lighter chick to be a pullet - seems to be a bit more feathered out, doesn't seem to have the "cockiness" of the darker one.

    i think the black one is a roo as he or she is very dominante and can be aggresive at times.we are now getting worried about the lighter coloured chick as it is getting a redish colour around its beak:/[​IMG]

    I think the one on the top is a pullet and the one at the bottom roo.
