    I have two 3 weeks & 1 day old chicks. I suspect that I have one pullet and one cockerel, as they are both very different looking. Yesterday I noticed a bit of a comb growing on the one that I suspect is a cockerel. Right now it is very yellow, when will it start to turn red if it is a cockerel?
