    Hello. I have 2 chickens in question. 10 week olds. Help! Pullet or Cockerel?

    What is the chicken in the foreground? The ones behind are clearly a hen and a rooster. But what is this one? Comb still bright...but not as bright and developed as the rooster.

    Last one in question. Comb seems pink-red and not as big as its flock mates. But I got a barnyard mix of Orpington and Amerucauana so I don't know what to look for. Someone please advise. Thanks.

    I'd say both are cockerels - buts it's hard for me to tell with Easter Eggers. Lol.

    Oops. A bit new to this site. Thanks for your input. My gut feeling was cockerels but started to second guess myself. I have someone wanting the roosters tomorrow but didn't want to be giving away any hens. Thought I'd ask here for some insight.
