    I've got some 3 week old chicks I bought as straight run. Two are Gold Laced Wyandotte's and one is deffinetly a roo and the other is a pullet. They're 2 more that I'm just not sure of breed or sex. Any help is much appreciated!

    It is a little hard to tell at three weeks. I'd wait till they're about 5-6 wks before really trying to sex them. You could however look for roosterish activity such as chest bumping or dominant behavior.
