    It may still be too early to tell with these three chicks, they are ten weeks old and I am starting to think that they are all cockerels :(

    Blue, black and partridge ( I am not sure if that is the correct term for this colouring as there are blue feathers coming in)

    So far, only the Partridge looks like a cockerel to me.

    Thank you for your replies. I do hope that you are correct, only time will tell. I suspect that the black is a cockerel. It does a lot of face offs with the partridge one. Is that the correct term? What do you call his colour?

    The black one color would be called black and the grey one probably lavender.

    No, the partridge. Is it partridge, red blue?
