    Here is a video of the birds:

    It may be a little hard to tell from the video, and at their age it might still be difficult to sex them at all, but I would appreciate anyone's guesses.

    We know that one of them has to be a rooster, as we heard one make an attempt at a crow. We suspect another one might be a rooster as well. There are five of them in total, all hatched on October 3rd.

    I see one with a very red comb, he puts his butt the camera at first. you can see the red comb around 1:26-1:29
    I think the rest are pullets...

    I see one rooster, a bird with red patches on his shoulders. Other than that, pictures are much better for gender id. Profile shots of each bird, including legs and comb are best.
