    The ones in the first picture that have waddles and combs that are already turning red are probably cockerels. Pullet's combs dont usually turn red until just before they start to lay.

    The others are too young to tell what sex they are, although if that black and white (pink) chick in the last picture has a large white spot on its head then Id say it is a cockerel, too.


    Note: What are you feeding the Easter chicks? It looks like they have scratch corn in their feeder. They should be on medicated chick starter, and if they get any scratch corn.....as a treat only..... then it should be chick scratch which is ground much smaller. [​IMG]
