    At 3 weeks? Yeah I'd have to guess that's a cockerel, though it's too young to be sure.

    I got about 50 that size right now, the roosters get pink combs and a touch of color in the wattles about that age. When they get a little older it gets harder to tell until they get up to 5 or six weeks.
