    So far, they all appear to be pullets, though I'm a little suspicious of the last one.

    The last one is looking like a cockerel to me, though the coloring isn't light enough and the comb isn't red enough for me to be sure.

    Thank you all for your help! I hope they are pullets. The last ones comb is bigger than the others sooooo that one may be a boy. He can just keep the other safe :)

    Just thought I would update on the gender of the chicks. All 6 of them were roosters. Every. Single. One. I am wondering if the whole straight run bin was male... [​IMG]
    I have to say though the male barred rocks are gorgeous.
