    Ok, I'm going to try this one more time. This is a 8 week old chick that I suspect that might be a rooster. I can't really tell yet though. I could tell pretty much my White Rock rooster was one when he was a 4 week old rooster. This one is a mixed breed though. So I'm not sure how long it takes to tell if they are roosters or not.
    I also added pictures of the other 8 week old chicks I have that I believe are pullets.

    Yep that is indeed a roo. You can tell by the colour of the comb. Pullets stay relatively yellowish in the face until they are closer to lay. Some may get pink earlier, but usually not that red.

    All of the other ones are girls :)
