    I hatched Rhode Island red eggs that were fertilized by black silkie rooster. This one is 3 weeks old. I'm wondering is this a rooster?

    At 3 weeks with that much comb and red, I'd guess cockerel...

    Looks like a cockerel to me.

    It's a shame. I can't raise roosters here. His sibling looks just like him and they fight. I guess they're both cockerels.

    Does the other bird have white/light color legs also?

    I'm leaning towards cockerel.
