    Here are three of my "suspects" They are 6 weeks old and from an "all pullet" order from MMH. I have already given away one cockerel, plus people I shared the order with have said they have cockerels too! So much for that...

    Anyway, here they are-

    LB, who is larger than my other LB, has the thicker shanks, etc... I am thinking cockerel

    This is the polish I have named cousin It and asked about last week. I am still hoping pullet...

    I'd have to say cockerel on the austrolorpe, his 'sister' here at my house has no noticeable comb at all and no wattles. The brahma too I'm afraid. my lb roo has a redder comb, but that might just be the lighting of the photo, the differences between my 2 brahmas is what makes me really suspicious. The polish....I have no idea! Good luck to you, I'm anxious to see what other people say! By the way they're all beautiful, I love the polish!

    My total guess is Pullet, pullet and Roo. My polish rooster has a much spikier crest and very red wattles. Polish are difficult to guess at though, but he had red wattles by that age and the pointed neck feathers. The last one looks like a roo to me too. Good luck!

    Pullet, pullet, roo would be OK by me. My other BA looks to be all pullet, so a pair might workout ok. Only kept 8 birds though, so if I end up with roo, roo, roo, it is gonna stink!

    Keep the educated guesses coming...

    The first one could be either...but the other two look like pullet and roo.

    It is a light brahma, they come in Buff and Dark as well... but that is the light.
