    Too young to tell for sure, but I'm not seeing any obvious rooster characteristics.

    The only way I can tell at that age is if the feathering between the shoulder blades is slower to fill in then the other chicks. Of the current 28 LF cochins we have it was obvious that we had 2 males at 2.5 - 3 weeks.
