    A friend of mine could no longer keep her chicks I have no idea what breed they are or age guessing around 4weeks. One of them looks a few weeks younger.All are healthy an eatting an drinking great. Is it possible to tell if they are roos or pullets now? Im guessing 1 roo but unsure of others.

    Hi and welcome to BYC. I'd say that the chick at the back is a cockerel. Not too sure about the others, but those with greater expertise will chime in, I'm sure.

    X2 , I'd say the white one in the back is for sure a cockerel. The others look like pullers but watch their comb/waddle development. Checking their waddles is as easy as peeking under their beak, if you see red stripes that means cockerel at this age. Good luck!
