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!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

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.
