    It is likely a rooster, however, a profile (side shot) could help.

    Hello everyone. I rehomed my rooster with great friends. So I decided to purchase more chicks so my pullet will have some friends. Bought these at a farm and am hoping none are roosters. HOPING you guys will give me good news. Tomorrow they will be 3 weeks old. Thank you.[​IMG]
