I think the first one is a cockerel because his comb is growing a lot faster than the others. But does the second picture look like a pullet or is it still too early to know? Could they just be developing slower?? Thanks!

    Might be too early but the first pic the wattles are getting red so maybe roo. I hatched 11 BCM 3 wks ago and seems to be 4 favors your first photo.

    If they hatched at same time I'd say 1 male and 2 is female
