    My quad of DLS Barnevelders that I bought a few months ago are almost 19 weeks.. when should I be able to tell if they are cockerels or pullets? At what point/age do you cull for lacing? This breed is completely new for me. I know that with other laced breeds the older they are, the crisper their lacing gets as they molt. I didn't know if it was the same or not?

    Do you have photos? I would think you would be able to make a guess on combs, feathering & size at this point.

    Post pics now, I can guess the gender. Should be fairly easy to tell by now :)
    Can’t help you on the lacing part though, sorry.
