What is the gender of my 10 week old chick

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi! I need some input on the gender of my chick. We're not sure if he/she is a roo or hen. We hatched him/her ourselves and we think he/she is an Americauna Copper Maran mix. The chick is ten weeks old. Here are some pics. By the way he is the pure brown chick.:)

 

 

 

 

Thank you for any info!

Sorry about the foggy pictures!

A clearer pic - side view of the tail would be helpful.  Hard to tell for sure, but I THINK I'm seeing dark, drooping feathers growing out in the tail - which would indicate male.  But it may just be the blurred pics that make it look that way...

Caretaker of a lovely mixed flock including: australorp, plymouth rocks, wyandotte, d'uccles, silkies, EEs, andalusian, and a few seramas, plus a golden retriever, great dane, and three cats.  I always swore that I wouldn't succumb to chicken math.  I lied.

With a comb that red, I'm guessing it's a cockerel. 10 weeks is still a bit young for male specific feathering.

I'm also thinking cockerel. A closer pic would confirm.
