  2. 4 looks like the only pullet. 2 is close, but I see pink wattles coming in which indicates cockerel.

  4. I'm sorry, chick genders tend to go the way you didn't want them to. I bought 12 expensive high production egg layers and 10 were males. The only thing you can do, is next time you get chicks, spend extra $$$ on sexed chicks, a few places will refund you for cockerels they accidentally send. I think TSC does if they were guaranteed pullets...

    Well 4 looks like a pullet... the other ones could be cockerels, 2 kind of looks like a pullet but the comb and wattles make it look like it could be a cockerel, so 2 could maybe be a pullet.

    How long are you going to wait to see what is what, or are you going just re-home on what you think is a cockerel, you could be getting rid of a hen and keeping a cockerel at this rate?
