    We have four 9 week olds who are all mixed breeds-moms are EEs, dads are EEs or Light Brahmas. Two I'm quite confident are pullets, and I have a sneaking suspicion that two are roos. Of course, they are the prettiest ones. If there's any chance I'm wrong, let me know.

    Here is suspect #1.

    Suspect #2. He is going to be beautiful, I think.

    And here's one of their sisters, just for comparison.

    Thanks!

    Here's the requested full body shot of the white one.

    Based on the comb and age, white one looks roo. Based on comb and body color, second one is also roo. And yes, third one is girl.

    I think those two are roos, but a side shot would be great for #1.

    #2 is a definite cockerel - Not sure on the first one, but probably is a cockerel.

    I do think they are both roos, based on their combs. My pullets didn't have anything going on at that age, just like the third pic.

    The black one has started crowing! [​IMG] Pathetic little crow, though. Never heard a chicken crow so young before!

    I snapped a couple more pics and added a full body shot of the white one into the first post.
