    Anyone know how to tell if these are roos or pullets yet? They are wheaten and blue marans. Around 3 weeks old..

    The blues you can't sex yet, you have to wait for combs, etc.

    I'm thinking the dark/black feathers on the Wheaten are the males, the brown are females. I hope someone with more hand's on experience comes along to verify that.
