    I would put them at 3- 4 weeks. Chick 3 is showing suspicious barring generally seen in cockerels

    So do the other two look as if they might be pullets?

    X2.....different plumage patterns have different"tells" when it comes to gender and the other two are of a type that is not obvious at this point
