    I just posted a picture of my rooster that I believe is a White Rock. The hen to these chicks is a game hen. They are almost 10 wks old in this picture. I have a feeling I know which is which but I thought I would get some outside guesses.

    #4 & #8 are pullets, the rest cockerals...#1 & #6 don't have huge combs but the wattles look too large for pullets at that age...my guesses....

    Thanks everyone. So far everyone is thinking like I am though I was trying to be hopeful that #1 and 6 might still be pullets. They just started growing waddles and combs the last two weeks and up until that point they looked like 4 and 8. I love the colors though just have to figure out what to do with all the boys now :O)
