    The first bird I am almost 100 that hes and boy. Read wattles and the size of the comb scream rooster to me. He's also the largest and the friendliest out of the three. The second one has no wattle development and a barely unnoticeable comb but she has the largest and most erect tail and is the nastiest of the three. The final bird has a small comb and slightly pink wattles (flash washes the color out) and sometimes likes being held other times is super skittish. They are about 5 weeks old.

    I'd say you are right that the first one is probably a cockerel and the second one is probably a pullet. The third I'm not sure, but looks like a slow developing cockerel.
