    I have 4 partridge rock babies 2 weeks old. My question is at what age can you tell the pullets from the cockerels. I have a guess about which one is the roo because one has yellow on either side of it's beak and just looks diff. Is there any way to tell from color?

    I have three from McMurray and they were suppose to be all pullets. However one turned out to be a roo and he's a really pretty boy.I wouldn't trade him for nothing now.The pullets will feather out faster than the roos so you should be able to tell after about 4 weeks old.Also the color pattern is completely different in between the two.
