    New user here. Also new to the world of chickens. Wondering if anyone has a guess as to what gender these are?
    All about 5 to 6 weeks old.
    OE, FBCM, and a Welsummer.
    Bottom pic is a cochin- around 4 weeks old. Thanks!

    A bit too young yet. Any roosters will get pink combs in the next few weeks where pullets will remain orange yellow for a few months.

    The Wellie is a pullet.

    The Marans doesn't look like a cockerel at this point.

    the OE, I'm unsure on. Not a ton of comb, but there's a decent amount of color, and those are some thick ol' legs.

    the Marans and OE are way less feathered than the Welsummer, could be a cockerel thing, but can't say for sure at this point.
