    the chick with the brown neck feathers is a pullet. The other pics are at a bad angle to try figuring it out.

    They all look like pullets to me, for now.

    Looks like Pullets on most of them, but the one with the gold feathers around neck has more red in comb and it's comb is a little bit bigger than the others....Cute chicks though regardless of there gender. I Hope I'm wrong and you get all Pullets [​IMG]

    At 6ish weeks I think it's safe to say they're all pullets.

    They do look like pullets, but I've had chicks that looked like pullets for two months or more and they somehow turned in to roosters.
