We splurged on this breed because of their stunning good looks, lovely green eggs, and the tendency for roosters to be docile toward people. So far, I am impressed.

I have my first set of isbar chicks. They will be 3 weeks old this coming weekend. How do you know at this age if they are cockerel or pullet?

Good question! My three cockerels developed plump, red combs and wattles surprisingly early. I'm not sure if this is typical of the breed or not.

The black cockerel in post #109 was photographed at 3 weeks, 2 days. Here is the same cockerel at 6 weeks, 5 days (and still just as sweet):

As a sidenote, he was actually the "late bloomer" of the three cockerels and didn't show significant comb/wattles development until he was a little over two weeks old.
