    I have three Spitzhaubens that are a hair over a month old. I'm thinking the two front ones are pullets as they are smaller and have a smaller crest. The one in the back I think is a cockerel because he's bigger has a larger crest. But I just wanted to get some other opinions.

    Ive never had the breed, so I wouldn't know for sure, but I think u are right.

    Spitzhaubens are extremely hard to sex until the start getting their saddle and hackle feathers in. Another month or so.
