So, you bought home chickens and don't know whether they are pullets or cockerels, well, I can help you! Please note:These indicators won't appear until the chicken is around 12 weeks old at the earliest. Saddle feathers: So first, look at the saddle feathers, if they are pointed then it is a cockerel, if they are rounded then they are more likely a hen.

Cockerel hackle feathers: (Credit goes to @Brahmachicken240) Wing sexing: While baby chicks are covered in down, the ends of their wings will have a light feather fringe. To view the wing feathers, grasp the chick firmly in one hand. Use your other hand to extend the wing out until the feathers are somewhat separated and visible. A cockerel chick will have wing feathers of roughly the same length. A pullet chick will have wing feathers featuring two varied lengths. Hope this helped you!
