    These are 8 week olds hatched at the same time. The father was an Ameracuana roo and the mothers were buff orp, red star, and black australorp. I think they are all pullets but what do you think? Do the combs turn pink like that at this point? They have been yellow until recently.

    The first and last are the same chick.

    you should watch them and if one's comb and wattle get bigger then the rest i would think it would be a rooster

    Keep an eye on the first one. They all pretty much look like pullets.

    I think they all look like pullets now. Roos generally have pretty obvious combs that are much redder and larger by 8 weeks of age. You usually have pretty good inclination by then.
