    I know there are many threads about the same thing and few people that said to message them about genders. But I'm posting this hopefully to get a few educated responses, as we need to switch any possible cockerels to pullets asap. Thanks so much in advance.

    #1 is a cockerel. #2&3 look like pullets just going by color but they've got quite a little comb and wattles already. How old are they? Are they from a hatchery or a breeder?

    They are from a local (in Ontario) organic farm. We bought them with the friendly agreement that we can bring back any cockerels for pullets. I assumed the farmer would have helped in sexing but he wasn't sure and I didn't do my research about the colours. My guess is #2 and 3 are 6-7 weeks??

    I really think 2 and 3 are pullets, but dang they've got a lot of comb for that young. I'd wait another week if you can on them two. #1 is a cockerel for sure though.
