    Looks like you called it on the black ones but I am not sure about the buff one?
    Sometimes the best way to tell is to wait and see which one crows [​IMG]

    You're right on the first three, the buff may be a pullet, but it will be a lottle longer before you'll know for sure.

    The 1st is a roo, see its earlobe? It's pretty big, so its probably a roo. The next 2 are hens, and I can't give you a really logical guess on the last one.....

    I think its alot harder to tell with the ones that don't have beards. At least that has been my experience with this group.

    Anyone have a diffinitive guess on Red?
