    [​IMG] I'm beginning to think I'll never have a pullet. Sorry if y'all are getting tired of me asking...the suspense is killing me! [​IMG]

    RIRs are about 6 weeks old.

    You may have hope with #4.

    Ace and Puff are too young for me to tell.

    I would say that #1 is questionable, I think #4 is a pullet, and Ace is a pullet. Ace was easy to tell because of the breed. BR pullets are more black than the cockerels and have black on their legs. It's hard to tell if Puff is or not yet. Give "her" a few more weeks. [​IMG]

    Any time you get wattles and tall combs showing at 4 wks. old, you can be pretty certain that you have little cockerels.

    I think the last 3 may be pullets.

    I think Ace looks like a black sexlink cockerel. That light of feathers coming in on the neck, and that dark on the body and wings, yep BSL cockerel.

    Thanks everyone!

    I'll have to find a black sexlink to know what it looks like. I'm guessing it is similar to a BR? That's what the feed said (s)he is...and they also said pullet. Nobody's perfect, lol.
