    I have 4 babies that were born mid May. I was hoping for hens but it looks like 1/2 and 1/2. I was also told I could identify pullets from Roos by their combs.... one of my babies (pullet I think) is a scissor beak. I was told early on to eliminate her, but until she's shows distress NO WAY. She's full of spunk and personality. She is the first to try anything and will hop on me first chance she gets. I'd appreciate any help you guys could give me. These are my first chicks to raise. I have 3 hens and 1 snarky roo which were supposed to be doms but all but 1 is a Barred Rock I'm told....another silly question ... do both sexes have beards, all seem to [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The first is a pullet, and the second two are cockrels. And beards will appear with both sexes :) they are all very pretty Easter eggers though!

    Looks like the 1st is a pullet. Pretty sure the other 2 are cockerels.

    I think the first picture is of a pullet and the next two are cockerals- never know i could be wrong. Lovely looking birds by the way

    Thanks so much guys! I have to agree, but I was hoping. Lol They all are soooo sweet but I have 1 roo (Snarky) and his 3 ladies (Josephine, Ms Chicken and Froggy) so I don't think I need to keep the Roos [​IMG]. My Snarky is SUPER to his ladies but I'm NOT his favorite. They are Barred Rocks
