    These 3 little chickens are about 8 weeks old. I know it's early but I'm wondering if anyone could tell what gender they might be?

    The one in the background is their adopted mother. You think all 3 of the young ones are cockerel?

    I mistook the mottled cochin hen for another of the 8 week olds. I think that the buff and white chick and the chick in the foreground are both cockerels. I believe that the chick to the left in the group picture is a pullet.

    Yeah sorry, I couldn't get a picture without mama bird. Chick #2 comb is weird to me and it's hard to tell.
