    I got 8 little BOs about 3 weeks ago. This is my first time owning chickens, and I cant believe how big they have gotten already!!! I have NO clue how many are guy/gals but just from looking it looks like I might have 3 roos and 5 pullets... I will give it alittle longer and see what happens.

    Here is a newly "constructed" brooder. They were getting to big for the other one. (I realize it's not the best, but it works)

    I am not an expert at this, sort of new...but imo I think chicks, 1, 3, 5, and def 8 are roos...but its still early, but for certain on #8

    I have Buff Orpintons that are 9 weeks old and mine barely have combs and wattles, so at 3 weeks I would say you have some roos.
