    Lately I've seen alot of ' Is this a Pullet Or a Cockerel? ' posts. If you post a picture of your chick/chicken I will try and identify its gender for you.

    I will guarantee to reply to you question. I may not be 100% accurate though.

    And the clearer the picture the better.

    :)

    Oooo - thanks! I'll start you off with an easy one, probably. My hatched babies are just three weeks and one day, but I'm pretty sure we've got a double roo situation on our hands here.

    The both sprouted feathers and little tails within the first few days, which made me hopeful. But right around two weeks the pink combs and wattles appeared.

    Here is Pat, the Black Copper Maran:

    Here is Lou, the American Bresse:

    I'm guessing zero percent chance that either of my little guys is a pullet, but would love to get an expert opinion!

    Yeah, they were both acting roostery from the get-go too. Now they are having flapping competitions, and they like to stand up tall and do a little chest-bump thing. Super adorable right now. But in a few months that's gonna be too much testosterone for my little flock.

    Yep they sound like their acting like cockerels too.

    If you need to know the gender of any other chicks or chickens, I'd love to help :D
