    I am never able to sex /Barred Anything's correctly, it always seems 50/50 to me until its blatantly obvious, but for the Red one I vote rooster, do you have any tail pictures? Are there any poitned feathers on the tail or neck? Were they hand raised and Does she seem skittish or fearful of people or not hang around as much with the others?

    At this age, I think they're all pullets.

    I'm leaning toward them all being pullets, too.

    I agree, even for the Easter Egger in one of the pictures. :)
