    I know it’s early, but I’m seeing a lot more comb development on my new EEs vs the pure blood Ameraucana I’ve had and I think I have an idea... let me know what you think too..

    I dont' see anything that screams cockerel at this point, but its still early. Wait until they're 8wks old and then post pics.

    Their still much to young, especially for pea combed birds.

    I'd guess all cockerels except #2.
    More pics at week 6.....red combs should be apparent by then.

    Please post updated pics at six weeks. Although I'd bet 4 is a cockerel.

    I would wait at least a few weeks but I am pretty sure #2 and #3 are pullets and #4 a little roo.
