hi, my chicks are 3wks old, 2 are off my black jersey giant, and dad is the cock in my profile pick! who i think is a blue/red leghorn! the other i dont know i hatched off a friend, the largest chick has long tail feathers and much more feathered than the others , but he stands like a cock

I have to say, 3 weeks is a bit young. I assume pics 1 and 4 are of the same bird, who looks like a cockerel (pink comb at 3 weeks is suspicious). Picture 3 I am not sure but the comb is fairly large. Picture 2 and 5 looks like a pullet.

5-8 weeks is a much better time frame for sexing, so repost some more pics in a few weeks
