    The first is hard to say, the second one I would say rooster, third pullet, and last pullet.

    They all look like pullets to me, though I'm less sure about #2.

    Thanks for your replies, 2 isn't showing any other signs of being a cockeral but will keep my fingers crossed that she/he is Edna and not Winston [​IMG]

    I think #2 may be a late blooming cockerel, but I wouldn't be surprised if I'm wrong.

    I think 2 is a cockerel, the rest look female.

    All appear to be pullets. If you did have a rooster it would be number 2.

    #2 looks like a cockerel, based off the patchy reddish coloring on the wings. The others look like pullets.
