    Looks to be a female to me as the comb is yellow and usually at that age its red for a male ...not sure what it was crossed with though...this is what someone told me as to how to tell what they are...I might be wrong but most of mine turned out the way I just told you...good luck

    I'd vote boy, especially if that's his typical alert stance. However, three weeks is a little young for guessing (for me!), and I sometimes do better when I have others of the same age and breed for comparison, too.
