    With that much comb and wattle at six weeks and pink...you might have all boys. Not 100% positive. Pictures of them standing naturally with back and tail feathers included would be helpful.

    OMG...that would mean 6 out of 8 sexed pullets I ordered (RIR and Barred Rocks) are cockerels.

    Avoid this hatchery!

    Which hatchery did you buy from? They guarantee a certain accuracy on sexes pullets generally so you may be able to be refunded or have some of
    Them replaced at no cost [​IMG]

    Feathers and stance and tail aren't indicative of anything at 6 weeks. I'm confident in boys without more pictures
