    They’re still really young, but let me know if you have any guesses.

    I’d give it a few weeks but second one is probably a cockerel but rest could be pullets,although I don’t like that comb developement and waddles in the rest.

    Yeah, the wattles are especially making me nervous. The other two I have are silkies so I'm not even going to bother to post those. I really hope I don't get 6 out of 6 cockerels.

    Thank you! I just put them on a white plastic chair in front of a window.

    I would say two looks like a cockerel, The other three look like they could go either way, so I would post again in a week or two.
