    These little guys are 5 week old ameracaunas;
    They are getting too big for their brooder. I need to sell my cockerals. The trick is figuring out which ones are boys.

    I agree with the ones in the first pic being cockerals and I think the first chick in the second pic is too.

    I'm not very good at this.

    I think the middle one in pic. #1 is a roo.

    could we see a picture of their bodies? It's easier to tell what gender they are by the Hackle feathers.

    I think you're right. The 1st 3 looks like roos, the 2nd batch look like pullets and the 3rd batch look like pullets.
