    I'm thinking the top could be a pullet and the bottom one is a cockerel!

    The ones your questioning!

    Would vote Turtle / Orp mix and Chicken Noodle / Lakenvelder look like cockerels with the amount of comb/wattle, Shinobi / Lorp mix looks like a potential pullet so far, but would want to see it in a few weeks, it does have more pink on the head than I like in such a black bird, can't see Rose / SLW well enough in the picture to guess

    Thank you for responding! I keep holing out hope for that lakenvelder but it just keeps looking more like a roo! Shinobi is such a sweet chicken. I hope it's a pullet. Turtle is pretty obvious and he's a butthead... He keeps trying to attack me even at 4 weeks! He will be tasty for sure... And Rose has no comb yet so I'm sure she's a pullet :)

    Here's Chicken's pictures at 1,3 and 6 weeks
