    Can anyone tell me if these little ones are pullets or roos? They were hatched June 3rd.

    So far they look like pullets but I would repost in a couple of weeks and ask again! :)

    I looked again closer this time and I think it's the second one in the 2nd pic towards the right.

    My best guess for now would be to look at combs and go by the rows. Triple row is usually male, single row is female. It's not 100%, but it's a really good indicator.

    I think I see at least two roosters, since that is a lot of comb for approximately 8 week old pea-combed birds. Individual photos of each bird would help, though.

    Wow they sure have changed in that short amount of time, I believe I see 4 cockerels and your pullet is in the last pic in the very back! Hope I'm just seeing wrong :(
