    The first a roo, 2nd a pullet, 3rd pullet, 4th pullet. Roo's will have more red in comb at that age. are more long legged in most breeds.

    the only one I'm not sure is a rooster is the second one, because I can't see the comb. Is sure has some thick legs, though. All the others are definitely males.

    I am going to disagree a bit with the others.

    #1 is an Andalusian. The hens of that breed get really big combs too. Having said that, this bird is likely a roo with that much comb at 9 weeks, however, it might be an early developing female.

    #2 is a pullet

    #3 I think is likely a roo. That's quite a bit of comb for that age to be female.

    #4 I think may be a roo as well because that is fairly patchy looking coloring. However as it is a mixed breed with EE, some crazy coloring can happen even in the females with 2nd generation EE, and the comb is very small and pale so it could be a female.

    My guesses
