    how about now? They will be 6 wks old end of this week. This is Chick #1 with Chick #3, who I KNOW is a rooster. But I am baffled about the white one, Chick #1. It has feathered out quickly, has a round body, comb is not that red yet compared to the black one whose comb gets redder by the day. But wattles are getting red. It stands like a pullet and is the sweetest most docile thing. I know that doesn't always mean anything. What say you?

    The black one is a cockerel and the other 2 are pullets.
