    I have 3 and figure I know the sex for 2 of them. They are all 5 weeks old.
    The first chick I am sure must be a roo. The 2nd I am sure is a pullet. But the 3rd's comb is smaller then the roo's and bigger than the pullet's. Maybe a slow roo? Any ideas???
    TY!!!

    BTW, I know the pics are poor but you can see the combs well enough to tell I think.

    Yes!! I had first thought to let them go but then decided to keep 1 roo and whatever were pullets of those two. So...I am giving the roo to a riend. She started losing chickens to eagles today after losing 2 to Sandy.
    THANKS!!!

    Today I gave her..
    Sebright pair
    Black-tailed Buff Japanese roo
    Lighter colored Partridge Silkie
    Blue? Silkie
    and the Mille Fleur Bearded D'uccle roo
    all about 5 weeks old

    I have 2 older Silkies...a buff and a porcelain... a white Cochin pullet ...all about 4-5 months old that I told her she could have but I told her it would be easier to get those situated after the trail ride we are going on tomorrow and she just left about an hr ago making it around 7:30 pm. We leave about 12 tomorrow and won't get back until after a cookout. :) I am finally meeting some people here that ride and like chickens, too!!!
    We have been here a year and I am just now finding people!!!

    Yeah, I was undecided about it's sex but figured it most likely a roo. I have never had this breed before and wondered though if pullet's sometimes looked like that!.
    TY

    Looks like you've got a cockerel, pullet and another cockerel to me too.

    My d'Uccles have taken forever to grow combs.
