    if they have thick legs, a reddish comb, or its kindof big, pointy feathers on the sattle but you cant tell at 3 weeks old.

    If they're only 3 weeks old all you can do is avoid buying any with bigger, redder combs and check for wattles coming in. My boys have bigger combs at this age and start getting the saggy skin under their beaks where the wattles form.
