    How in the world can you tell? Other than comb, he looks like my 5/6 week old birds. Im so mystified how people can tell a cockerel from a pullet!! [​IMG]

    It's a number of things, but the comb so very early is the biggest giveaway. Everything from the bird's posture, the legs, the comb, and it's feathering-in pattern tell a part of the tale.
