Very new to chickens. Does anyone know if this is a Rooster?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

This is Penguin and it's about 9 weeks old. Penguin has started to make some funny noises as the sun comes up and out grew a chick a week older than it. I'm new here, but can anyone help me figure out if she is actually a he?

Looking at the size of the comb and it being only nine weeks old I would say it is a rooster.

I'm leaning towards cockerel.

With  that light barring and the size and redness of its comb and wattles at 9 weeks, you have a cockerel.
