    To me they all look the same except for the comb and waddles. What do you look at to tell the difference in the gender. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Thank you for the replies. All of the 16 week old's are pullets?

    I'm not totally experienced with BCM, having only raised one, but from what I see, I think your first two of the young ones are cockerels, and the rest, including all of the older chickens, are all hens.
