Please help me determine breed and sex of my new Bantam chicks born 4/7/16

post #1 of 9

Please help me determine breed and sex of my new Bantam chicks born 4/7/16.  Her name is Sofia and she is beautiful.  Her feathers have grown in much faster than the other 2 Bantam chicks and she is very adventurous and is flying out of their box.  She has grown a red comb in recent days and we are hoping she is a pullet and not a rooster.  She is only 3 weeks old so I know it will be hard to determine.  Any suggestions on breed and sex?

 

 

 

Sofia is on the right

Sofia is the center chick

Possibly an Old English Game bantam? The second to last pic of the comb makes me think Sofia is a boy...

Sofia is changing every day and is just so beautiful.  She is 5 weeks old and we still want to know what anyone thinks about her sex.  We are hoping she is a girl.  Her comb is the same as our grown up OEG hen so we are really really hoping she is a girl...  What do you all think?

I think at 5 weeks old that is definitely a cockerel

Darn...  It is probably why she is so beautiful!

That's a cockerel. Hopefully you can keep him.

I don't think so...  I do not enjoy being awoken by a rooster crowing right outside my bedroom window!

At first we didn't like it either but now I don't even notice it. :)
