    Hen very small comb and caught trying to warm up the 6 day old Australorps last week.
    Goldy/ Heinlein Rooster cause of bright colors as well as the comb being larger than the ones I am 95% sure are hens.
    Hen with small comb and dull coloration
    Rooster largest in the brood pen. Largest comb and today started showing red in comb.
    Hen small comb and dull coloring.
    Smokey a Hen smallest of the lot.
    Drama a Hen but not totally sure. comb is somewhat larger and colors are brighter than most of the darker ones.
    Hen dark colors but also larger comb on this one as well.
    Okay I've posted these pictures on a Facebook site and 2 I am almost positive are roosters one person told me was a hen. Posted Pictures along with my best guess or thoughts on each. Really curious and it's driving me Bonkers trying to guess.

    I agree with most of your guesses, with that said, the last two look like cockerels to me as well. However, it's too soon for much more than guesses at this point.
