    3 weeks is too early to tell. 6-8 weeks you can usually get some idea about which way they are going, though some can surprise you. I had a bantam I was sure was a boy because of its behaviour but it's a girl. Look out for sprouting wattles - they are usually a good indicator of it being a boy and they start to sprout around 6 weeks old. Large breeds generally don't crow until they are getting close to 3-4 months old so you have a bit of time.
