    After looking at the pics Im a bit more sure of whats what but take a look and give me your opinion..My other four were easy to spot from hatch..These have a somewhat bigger comb than the pullets at 5 weeks but also smaller than the roosters at the same age..Between these two one does have a larger comb but still??

    I think the one in the second pic. looks more rooish to me. Is it the pic or does the second one have a little pink in the comb. Sandy

    I see wattles in the first pic and not in the second. If that's right, I'd go with roo, pullet.
