What gender on 4 week old frizzle mix

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I got this frizzle mix from a breeder a few weeks ago. She said it is a Frizzle (Cochin, I assume) male mixed with a Wyandotte hen. She didn't know exactly how old it was or exactly which pair it came from. It looked about 2 weeks old when I got it, which would make it around 4 weeks old by now. Any idea on the gender?

Looks like a pullet for now, but it is too early to be sure.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."

I agree; but keep an eye on that comb. If it reddens up over the next few weeks, you will know we were wrong and you have a cockerel.

Ok thank you guys. It's a strange looking bird, it was one of the breeder's projects, I believe. With some of the wing feathers being white underneath so far, I think it will be pretty when it matures.
