    Ha, no not sure, thats what I was told. I thought they looked more like 5-6 weeks. I'll get some up top ones in the A.M. [​IMG]

    They don't look quite that old to me either. At this age they aren't going to have any saddle feathers to speak of anyway. They're still pretty young, but I'd say the 1st is a cockeral, the 2nd more than likely a pullet and the jury is still out on the third.

    looks like little cockerals on all of them. theyve got little wattles on all of them. and if they are younger than 8 weeks then i would still say 3 cockerals.
