    How old do they need to be to fairly accuratly guess gender? Mine are 5 1/2 weeks old. Please take a look at video and tell me if you think this is a pullet or roo. And what breed? I've been told it's probably a light Brahma. Thanks

    Really? I am surprised. This is my "free exotic" from McMurray's and I was told by many that those are almost guaranteed to be roosters.

    How about this three week old leghorn. This one is bigger than the rest and has the checks

    I think cockerel on this one by the size of his legs and comb.
