 I am not completely sure... prob about 8 weeks now. When I got them the lady said they were 3 weeks old but they didn't look anything like the other 3 wk old chicks I had.

Could you get clearer pictures in natural lighting? I think you may have one or two cockerels.

Watch how they act towards each other.

Cockerels are always chest bumping, kicking and just being cocky.

Pullets can be pushy but not like the cockerels.

Red combs are a sure sign you have Little Roosters in the making!
