    We have a 8wk old chick, and I'm still not sure if it's a pullet or cockerel yet. The one on the left is definitely a cockerel but I'm not sure about the one on the right.
    I think I'm leaning towards pullet since it isn't near as red as the other one.
    What are your thoughts?
    Thanks![​IMG]

    How lucky can you get? I see two cockerels.

    Is that single comb indeed red? If that's what I'm seeing then no need for extra photo. If you see red then it's a cockerel. Photos can deceive color.

    We also have another chick that I'm suspecting is a rooster... This is my favorite chick and we'll probably end up keeping it even if it is a rooster, But I just would like to know if it is.
