    So, I bought 3 cou nu (French naked neck) chicks some months ago and I'm really unsure on the gender of the splash one and have been for quite some time now . Sometimes I think pullet, sometimes I think cockerel.

    I am kinda leaning towards pullet right now, but I could be wrong.

    Here's some pictures of it:

    And here it is together with a very obvious black cockerel (it was easy to tell early with him) and an almost certain pullet (They're the same age):

    Just the other two, so that you can see them more easily and compare

    And a bonus pic of it when it was about 7 weeks of age:

    Thanks beforehand!:)

    I'd say its a cockerel, especially after seeing the 7 week old pic. Just slower developing than the black one.

    Blue and Splash Naked Necks are pullets.

    I was worried about that:( But I also suspected it could be the case, especially when compared to the blue pullet. I just got into a bit of a denial about it, haha


    I really hope you're right!:D

    Thank you both for the help, much appreciated!:)
