    I'm guessing Roo just because his comb is already having a red hue and he's so young!

    Next up...a side by side of my SLW's
    They are also 2 1/2 weeks old and one comb is more developed than the other.

    Really, really early to say much.

    The pinkish color could mean something, or not, right now. I've had some Wyandotte mixes get peachy early, but were pullets.

    Ditto for the others...a bit fleshy, but still really early.

    It may well be you have 2 roos and a pullet, and keep watching to see if they continue to develop as such, but they may not.

    Thanks for your comment! I realized I was really ridiculously early asking such a question. I just was noticing these differences and was getting worried. I'll repost here in 3 or 4 weeks.

    I would guess cockerel, but it really is too young to be sure.
