Is this Frizzled cutie a roo?

post #1 of 4

5 week old Bantam Cochin- supposed to be a girl, but the slow feathering and pink wattle/comb base is telling me roo. Is there still a chance for a pullet? Thanks!

It is a bit early to tell, but based on his larger combs and wattles, it does look to be a cockerel. If you have any other chicks his age, compare wattle and comb size. That is really the only indicator at this age. He is too young to compare male/female feathering

Still hoping it's just too early. My other chick is a RIR- same age. Has the comb too but no wattle and comb is still yellow, and she's all feathered out. Thanks!
