    I've got three hatchery Black Dorkings and I'm hoping that at least one of them is female. The wattles on this one are much smaller than on the other two. The longer tail feathers are an indication, I think, but all three have them to some degree. They are 12 weeks old. Thanks so much

    1 and 2 are cockerels. 3 might be a pullet but I'm not 100% sure. Can you get a picture of it in the light?

    Thanks for your input everyone I really appreciate it. I wish I could keep one as they're really friendly. Anyone want one? I'm in Virginia near Richmond.
