    They look like pullets to me. My roos always have much darker feathers on their wings.

    So what did you end up with? Which are which? I'm trying to learn this. I just hatched a few and I'm pretty certain 2 are boys, but the third one has me scratching my head. I was correct about the other 3 I've hatched, but this one chick just has me stumped. I'd take a pic but I've misplaced my battery charger.
