    Can you tell if these are male or females? They are about 3 to 4 weeks old. Is it too early to tell? Thanks for your help. [​IMG]

    The second picture might be a male. But no guarantees. I'd say its too early to tell right now.

    Too early but, I think I see 2 or 3 early cockerels - not sure if a different chick is in two of the photos. Also the red light makes it hard to access color.

    Yes, I know the red, heat lamp probably doesn't really help with identification. I will post better pics. Thanks for your replies
