I have 8 chicks in total and the other 7 are obviously pullets to me. All of them were vent sexed as pullets by MPC.

    Right now nothing says 'cockerel', but it is too early.

    Not an obvious cockerel, yet.
     
  5. Too young to tell. You should be able to tell once they are a little older.

    Thanks! I’ll post updated photos in a few weeks and see if it’s easier to tell!
