Cockerel or Pullet?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

A few months back, we purchased 8 Ameraucana pullets at one week old, but now we suspect that 3 of them are cockerels. They are now 13 weeks old. Can I please get some help determining the sex of these 3 chicks?

You are right, these are all three cockerels. The reddened comb and pointed saddle feathers just emerging give them away. They are beautiful little boys though! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
