Is this a rooster?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
We got 6 chicks from IFA 5 days ago and one is looking like a possible rooster. He/she is a larger one and I noticed this on their beak today! If "Hoppy" is a rooster we can't keep him in our city. Would it be a bad idea to bring another baby chick into the group we have?

Much too young to sex. You'll need to wait a few weeks minimum, probably longer to tell for sure.

Sure is CUTE anyway.  Try posting pictures again when at least a month/4 - 6wks old.

I would be happy to help decide but I won't be 100%accurate if you can take some more picture of her sides and bottom. smile.png

From here it looks like the 'dino ridge' as hubby calls it smile.png we were scared too, living in the city when 4 of our babies showed it! But they're all happy egg laying hens 2 yrs later. At worst, he'll cockadoodle, and you can call a local co-op for a farm nearby. See if they want a rooster smile.png

Too young to sex at this point. You will have to wait at least another month to know.
