    This isn't all I have but if I could just get an idea, I would feel better. I keep waiting on the first crow attempts, but nothing yet. They are estimated to be about 7 weeks. I swear, all of my easter eggers look like hawks. It is just strange.

    I say both barred rocks are pullets.Roos would be lighter in color, bigger combs, and larger wattles.

    I don't have a clue about other birds. I'll guess roo for pic #3 and pullet for pic #4.

    i think they all be pullet's...it's hard to see the back end but my grandma told me that way back when the way they told there's apart when they were chicks is if the tail feather's are in a v then they were pullets and if it was like a fuzzy cotton ball on the rear then it was a rooster...thats what i go by and most of the time i am 95 % acc...for example here is a pic...
    [​IMG]The one looking at me in pic in middle is a roo...i have put money on it lol the 2 on each side of it are pullet's....
