    I'd say that your suspicions on chick number 3 is correct.

    I was really hoping chick #3 would be a hen. He is my only frizzle. Do any others stand out as roos to you? I know they are still young so they can still surprise me and turn either way.

    Right now #3 looks like it may possibly be a cockerel, but it is hard to say at this point. It would be helpful for you to post update pictures in a week or two once they show more progression.

    I'm leaning toward #3 being a cockerel, too.
