    I'll be in the barn!
    With that size of comb, I'm leaning toward rooster.

    Bought this "pullet" at TSC to replace Barred rock roo that I had to rehome. I picked the one with darkest legs and smallest head spot. 5 weeks old and I'm afraid I have ANOTHER barred rock roo on my hands!! [​IMG] Is starting to peck and jump on my two 7-week old pullets.
    What do you all think?
    Thanks for your opinions!

    I've got a couple I'm not sure about. They're all 10 weeks old and fairly skittish, so I had a hard time getting photos of them without anyone around to hold one. These all have very pale combs compared to my Blue Cochin cockerel who is the same age, so I had assumed they would be bright red by now if they are boys. These are my first chickens, so I'm not great at sexing yet!

    First up is a brown/red Easter Egger - pale comb, does not seem to have any noticeable rows, but has reddish patches on wings that seem to be slowly covering the whole body. I originally thought cockerel before the red color started spreading, but now not sure!

    #2 is a gray/cream colored Easter Egger. My current guess is pullet because of the more uniform color, and seems to have one row on pea comb.

    #3 is a Silver Laced Polish bantam. When looking at the crest at a day old, I thought cockerel, but now this looks more like a bonnet than a wacky hairdo, and feathers are fairly rounded at the tips.

    Everybody together.

    Thanks!

    thanks for telling me what I have everyone. Sad news, pan got out of the yard and disappeared,so now I've got Fry left. But I'm gonna go to Orchelin's and get another Rhode Island Red, and this time I'm gonna make sure it's a hen.

    Thanks! I have been looking through a bunch of breeds, but anything helps on narrowing it down. She's a small bird & very personable. She flies around our back porch & sits on ur shoulder or the back of ur chair. She loves being where ever you are.
