    Approx. 6 week old Barnevelder chicks. I believe I have two pullets and a cockerel. I am also curious about the cockerel's color.
    Thanks in advance! (Edited to change age...my Millies are 11 weeks, these ones are 6-7 weeks old. Apologies!)

    Pullet?:

    The last one is a cockerel. And he's blue.
