Needing the expert opinions on this one of mine. Bantam EE, five weeks old and I've been told cockerel but want to make sure before I do anything.

Still too young to be sure. The comb looks a bit big, but not definitively a cockerel, yet.

Thank you! Give him/her more time!

It's still a bit young to tell for sure. The comb looks a little pink in the last picture, but in the first picture it looks fairly pale, so it may just be flushed. Update us in another week or so.

Breeds I raise: Easter Eggers, Naked Necks, PROJECT white d'Uccles, Mille fleur d'Uccles, RI reds, Barred PR's, Assorted Cochins, GLW's, Sexlinks, Mutts, and one Lavender Orpington!

Turkeys: Bourbon Red ~ Standard Bronze

Ducks: Blue ripple and black Muscovys

I'm double checking on this one due to the comb looking like it does and the spots of colors coming in on it. I had thought pullet but now, I'm not so sure??

 

 

 

6 weeks old Bantam EE. Thanks again!!

Red, three row comb + red patches - Most likely a cockerel.

That's what I was thinking! I thought when he was younger that he would be!

This chick looks a lot like my little LB did!!!! Poor LB died a few weeks back. I miss her so much.

I think your chick is a cockerel.

21 chickens. 3 horses. 2 dogs. 1 cat.

I love to jump horses and kick up dirt 'round the cans!

Please read about my chick Owlet in her blog!

I love caring for special needs chickens and am considering starting a Special Needs Chicken Rescue.
