    Hi All!
    I hatched 8 eggs in an incubator and would now love to get your help on sexing my chicks. They are 8 weeks old in the photos. I am going to give each chick in question it's own post to avoid any confusion. Three of the little buggars have started to crow already so I won't need to post them!

    Cockerel. No pullet would have that big of comb and wattles at 8 weeks old. Pullets don't grow larger comb and wattles or get color on them until 16 weeks at the earliest.
