    Ok, these guys are 6 weeks old now. Some of them are obvious some aren't. Let's see if you agree with my guess.

    First picture #1 Pullet, #2 ? I think it's a roo, but his comb isn't as big or as red as the others, but he's light colored like the others. #3 Pullet #4 ROO!

    Second pic. #1 BO Pullet #2 This is the ? again. Roo? #3 pullet #4 Black Orp. Pullet

    3rd pic. this is another picture of all of them for a better look.

    Ok, what do you think? They won't pose for pics anymore, so this is about the best I can get.

    I think your two roo guesses are roos, just some are later bloomers. I question the black orp in the second pic though.... however... I can only say this with a 50% error rate. LOL. I think your guesses are pretty good. I don't see any wattles on the BR in question, but he can be a late bloomer.

    What kind of cross is #3? Not guessing on the sex. If I don't commit, I'm never wrong, LOL.

    Wonder if that Buff Orp was carrying dominant white... interesting color on that one.

    You have nice chickens! Your chicks are a week ahead of mine. Does #4 in the first picture have any spurs yet?
