    These 4 are from eggs I got from Bobbi Porto. They are 11 weeks old.

    #1. This is the easy one. I'm 99% sure she is a pullet:


    #2. I also think this may be a pullet:


    #3. Is this one a cockerel?


    #4. This one I can't tell. He's feisty and fast. Also, he is the runt, about half the size of #3. Does the smallish crest mean male?


    Lastly, from top to bottom, is #'s 3, 1, and 2 in a more natural stance. #4 wouldn't cooperate.

    Yea I think your right #3 I think is a cockeral but I'm not positive. The rest look to be hens to me but I'm no expert so I would take someone else's word over mine [​IMG] Gorgeous birds by the way [​IMG]
