Please help me determine if my 3 week chicks are roosters or pullets...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi! I just joined smile.png I have 2 black copper maran chicks and one splash blue isbar at 3 weeks. All of their combs are forming as well as tail feathers (feathers came in for all fairly early.) Anyway, i was looking at sites about sexing and came across the site the chicken chick who ive heard is really a good source of info. However i cannot directly ask her, so any feedback would be great. I am attaching the 2 pics of the marans as well as the isbar. I have no clue with the isbar as I dont have anything to compare him/her to. But the chicken chick did post a collage pic where she sexed the black copper marans at the same exact age of my marans and even still, im having trouble determining. Please help




The collage is from the chicken chicks site. Thanks!

To young to sex for sure but you may have a possible cockerel, I would post again around 6 weeks or so.

Thank you for responding! I know i have to wait a bit more, but just curious about what others thought. Im trying to be patient, but it is so hard for me! wink.png were you thinking all 3 were cockerels or were you saying one maybe.....i know responses may or may not be right yet, but just hoped someone might see something..i am so new to this, so I know I could be missing so many factors. I was also intrigued that the lady on the website was able to determine the sex of her marans so early. Are my marans leaning towards one or the other based on her pictures?

I understand, patience is one of my weaknesses :rolleyes:, I was thinking the white one maybe a black one, but at this age it really could go either way. Also Some people, get the same breed and breed them over and over and practice sexing them.
