lol...5 pics and i get 3 roo's. That isn't looking good. Wish now i could post all 50 of them to see what they are.
I also have coochins, barred rocks and araucanas. What characteristics at 4 weeks will determine Roo or pullet? I honestly have no clue.
Agreeing on breed and sex as stated above.
As to how to determine the rest, look for a mighty red comb. If you look at the 5 pics shown, notice how red the area above their beak is. That will help. You'll have a few that might be slower in showing the red as well.
Yes, it's easy to tell the for sure roos, but not so easy to tell the for sure hens
