    We're at almost 5 weeks now. Is there usually a size difference between pullets and cockerels? My 4 chicks are all the same size, but 1 was late to feather and has a more pronounced comb.

    It's so hard to be patient! And it's only an issue because I absolutely cannot have a rooster where I live, although I really wish I could!

    Thanks :)

    Out of the 8 sussex that I have one is very clearly a rooster with uneven feathering, more rounded body, hardly any tail feathers, and has the pinkest comb and wattles of them all. The other 7 are feathered evenly have pretty decent tail feathers and seem to have a more elongated body. With them being about 4/5 weeks old are the ones with the slightly larger, pinkish combs definitely cockerels or is there even the slightest chance they may still turn out to be pullets?

    I'll be in the barn!
    I think your guess is right.

    Pullets, I think

    Cockerels, i think.

    Hopefully none of my guesses got mixed up. I'm running on 3 hours of sleep and it is already 10PM :p

    Update on these 12. They are now mostly 5 weeks old with a few being a little older. I also had read the information above about blue/barred, but was also told if my birds are mixes they might not breed true to these specifications. And I have some that seem not to fit those traits. Tell me what you guys think! Here they are now:

    Chick 1: Blue Chick (While totally blue in color..."she" has an awfully large and red comb to be a girl)
