    Anyone want to try guessing mine? I'm a newbie. Sorry they are not the best photos. I have more, but I can't tell the orpingtons apart in them, lol. I made a point for these ones..

    4 week old olive egger (ameraucana X maran), I believe she is a pullet.

    4 week old buff orpington #1 (next to olive egger and buff orpington #2). I am guessing cockerel.

    Splash (ameraucana X maran). I am guessing cockerel but I hope not, lol

    Buff orpington #1 and #2 (I'm guessing #2 is a pullet because she is smaller and has shorter feathers)

    Buff orpingtons, #1 in back, #2 in front

    Buff orpington #3. I am guessing cockerel.

    Splash, and not sure which orp is which

    Itty Bitty. I am guessing pullet. I'm not sure what she is. She was part of the same hatch as the other olive eggers, and I was told she was also an ameraucana X maran, however she has always been twice as small..

    I'll try to get more photos when I find my camera charger.

    Thank you for answering, I was having trouble displaying the image. What a shame, this was my sweetest and what I thought was my first girl to ring the "bell"and lay an egg. :/

    I'm super new to Chicken raising, and I have several chicks that I am on the fence about, but sometimes they make it easy, even for us newbies.
    I have 3 Welsummers that aren't quite 4 weeks old, even so, this week one sprouted a significant comb, he is much less feathered, his legs are huge compared to the other 2 and he sits and walks differently with a super long neck.
    It's too early to say for sure that the other 2 are pullets, but I feel fairly confident that he is a cockerel

    At 7 weeks old the comb is quite red. The behavior can account for some of it however many pullets are quite capable of roo-ish behavior. In my experience you will not see a comb that red, that young, on a pullet.
