    We purchased 5 EE pullets from the feed store. Today, at 3 weeks old, their combs are all beginning to change. Two have reddened, one is pale but wide, two you can barely see, etc. they all look different.
    This is the one I am closely watching.

    With that comb at three weeks, X2 I would mark that one as a probably cockerel.

    I agree. Three rows of peas (in the comb) typically points to a cockerel.

    Looks like a cockerel to me, too.

    I'm also thinking cockerel.
