    You have a pullet for sure. A cockerel wouldn't be colored like this, and would have a larger comb/patchy coloring.

    2 weeks is too early to tell. 4 or 5 weeks is when you can start sexing them. I actually felt that one of my 3 day old cochin "pullets" was different because "she" was bigger and more active. Later on Olivia turned out to be and Oliver!
