    I think you are right, although the last pic may both be pullets. I can't tell for sure with the angle on the comb on the last one.

    I'd love to give you one of my roos but I'm a bit far away. I got my eggs from MotheGoose ( Christie ) and would highly recommend her.

    Not yet I need to make sure my husband will be ok with it as I don't want him to kill over. LOL
    I can't wait I have the hatching fever . I need to get the breed that I want and keep them pure.
    The mixed breeds are cool but you can only have so many.

    They all look too young to even make guesses greater than 50/50 based on combs now. They look to be about a week old and so you'll have to wait another 4-5 weeks for their secondary sex characteristics to be apparent. At this age, their comb just shows what they were born with and what type they will develop into.
