    Can you tell at 3 months if they are boys or girls? Can you tell by the combs or would they be getting their neck coloring in by then.

    Thanks,
    Michelle

    I'm a newbie, but at three months my cockerels had much more developed combs and wattles. They also had more color there than the pullets.

    i should think at 3 months you can tell the sex......check the tail and hackle feathers.....if you can post a picture...we all might be able to help

  6. at three months it may be hard for you if you have all males or all females. If you can see them side by side the female def. looks more feminine like the pic above Comb is very small on the female at that age. The males comb is a bit larger and they are also usually about an inch taller at that age. Look on my byc page for some younger pics....I have to look and see if I have the three month pics or not.

  8. 3rd row, 4th and 5th picture. 5th pic is a roo at about three months old. You can see is comb is a 1/4 to 1/2 inch bigger. Its hard to tell on the neck and tail feathers on GLW's at that age
     
  9. Quote:I hope the 2nd pic is not at 3 months old, if so I want what ever you are feeding. LOL
