    I currently have 7 Rhode Island Red chicks in my brooder. They are 3 Weeks today and as a guide I'm going to post pictures of them each week and see when i can tell the Pullets from the Cockerels. I would also be happy if you could try and tell me what gender they are looking like.

    I know at 3 weeks it's almost impossible to tell but here are the pics. I also added my guesses to the pictures.

    1) Sparky

    So for late reply, it wouldn't upload the photos.

    I sort of lost track of who was who because they looked so similar.

    Anyways, Here are the pictures:

    I got four hens and a cockerel in Canterbury, Kent ( I'm from the UK ) and then I hatched out these little guys.

    I haven't posted any pictures for this week because they all look the same!

    I have been wondering about these little guys and if your guesses have been correct so far. How are they doing? Do their gender guesses still stand?
