    I am just posting some pictures for people that can appreciate looking at chicken photos, however, if anyone thinks they can tell the sex of either of the yellow ones, I would love some opinions.I know the black ones are black sex link pullets.They are all 3 weeks old.

    There is only 1 photo. 3 weeks old is also a bit young to tell at this stage.... try posting again in about 3-4 weeks and I'm sure somebody will be able to help you!

    I posted more. My phone tends to misbehave on this website. Other than crowing, which I know won't be till later,what else should I look for? Behavior? Is the fact that the one is so much bigger a sign it's a rooster?

    Any pink combs within the nest few weeks will usually indicate a cockerel. Also pointy neck feathers and saddle feathers later on indicate cockerel! Hope this helps

    It's too young to tell. Repost pics at 6-8 weeks

    My chicks are a little over 6 weeks old now! They are growing so very fast! This is the one in question. It might be too early still but I thought I'd see if anyone had an guesses. It's larger than the others and more bold.
