    These babies are still young, so I'm sure it's still too early to tell one some of them, but I thought some of you may be able to tell on a couple? I'm super paranoid about it, and trying not to get too attached in case I have to take one (or more, oh no!) back to the hatchery. Also, if you are an "expert" on the breed but can't tell yet from the pictures, if you could give some pointers on what to look for to distinguish male from female, that would be awesome. Thank you all for any help!

    I'm leaning towards all pullets, but it's to young to give an accurate opinion.

    They all look like pullets for now, but it is too young to be sure.

    Agreed. I would repost their pics again in about 3-4 weeks. By then we should be able to tell you for sure.

    Way too young to tell, sorry. If I had to peg anyone as a cockerel it would be the Red, those are some big thick legs. Post again around 5-6 weeks and we'll have a better idea.

    Thank you all! I definitely will repost in a few weeks. :) And I'll be so sad if my Rhode Island is male... s/he's my favorite.
