    It is still to early to tell but the white has me thinking girl. Give them several more weeks.

    Are these pics from when they were born or now? They look too little to sex, but you can usually tell by their stance around 5-6 weeks and boys start getting pinker combs at that time as well.

    Quote:I'm seeing feathers, must be recent pics. They're 3 weeks old - I bet you'd be seeing a little pink by now if they were cockerels.

    But don't trust me - I thought I had 4 cockerels in my batch of hatchery pullets, and there was only 1. The one that I was SURE was a cockerel from the first week is a beautiful GLW pullet, and I think she's getting close to lay...

    Some of my EEs had me pretty well fooled until they were 8 weeks. I'd say 8 weeks is the earliest you can tell... and even then some cockerels are slow to develop their combs. Same with my Araucanas and Ameraucanas..... at least 8 weeks and sometimes more.
