    the white one is definitely a rooster, the red/brown im not so sure about, coloring makes me want to say girl but that comb is pretty big.

    The brahma looks like a pullet to me. The black and white one as well as the two chicks with the red shoulders look like cockerels.

    I thought they looked like roos also but some of the info online said if they have long tail feathers they are roosters. And the 3 with the longer tails i had thought to be pullets. And on here the ones with the short tail feathers everyone thinks they are the roos. I am hoping to have atleast 3 hens out of the 6 from tractor supply. Fingers crossed

    Tail feather length have nothing to do with gender, sometimes cockerels feather out slower than pullets.
