    I hope the images loaded. These guys are 3 weeks old. Wondering if I have hens or not.

    It's a little early to be sure on any of them. When they are 6-8 weeks old, it should be easier to tell. I would GUESS that 1&2 are pullets and 3 is a cockerel but it's just a guess at this point.

    I"m still thinking two pullets and that last bird is a cockerel.

    That's what I'm thinking. I certainly hope so anyway. All three of them are so sweet.
