    Hello! I am a new to this whole chicken raising fun and I hear everyone's favorite game is "Cockerel or Pullet?"! So, I thought I'd throw my pictures in the ring.

    These babies are right about 3 weeks old. I have another brown and black one that I couldn't get a good picture of but I am pretty sure he is a roo (big 3 ridged comb).

    My guess from everything I have read is that the gray and the brown one are pullets and the white one is cockerel but I would love to get some other opinions.

    They are to young to sex for sure but I think the white one maybe a cockerel, if you post again they are older we can try and guess more accurately.

    Yes, it is way to early to tell... post a picture at 5-7 weeks and we will be able to give you a real answer. :)
