    Thinking one Roo, 2 pullets. Anyone with Phoenix experience have any other thought?

    Second chick with the giant comb is definitely a little cockerel. The other two are too young to confirm gender; at this point they could be male or female.

    Please post pictures again in a few weeks.

    Out to pasture
    One very obvious boy - hopefully the others stay pullets.

    Thanks guys. I can't get Phoenix chicks on anything but straight run. And I really wanted the Roo more so than the hens. But I will always take hens. I was leaning towards 1 Roo 2 Pullets too. Just hopeful it stays that way so I don't have to get rid of a Roo

    There is one definite cockerel, and I think I see a possible less-developed cockerel, too.

    Thanks!! I was starting to think I might have made an error...


    The one I could not say is a pullet and my rule of thumb is when in doubt go boy........ 2 more weeks should help a lot on that one.
