Hi all! I posed my olive egger in question. Here is our 3 week old Lavender Orpington. Any thoughts on gender?

Looks like a cockerel to me! Here’s our lavender orpington pullet at 6wks and yesterday at 17 weeks. Her comb at 17 weeks is more comparable to your 3 week old chicken’s, telling me you probably have a boy :)

Ah I see what you mean! Sadly! We can’t have a rooster. Thanks for sharing the pics!
