Help With Breed and Sex, 6 Week old chick

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys! I have a chook that I am not sure of gender or breed, I believe it is a HE but would really love it to be a SHE can people who know something about sexing chicks tell me if its a girl or boy and breed? It was born on 29/09/14 (about 5 weeks and 4 days old now). I think it is either orpington, australorp or maran? (when I purchased I was told its a Barred rock-the seller was a newbie too)

Can't help you on breed, but sure looks like you were right about it being a cockerel.  Oddly colored feet.

Oh, and not to forget the golden retriever!

I'm sorry I can't really help but that's a beutiful boy! I still think he could be a girl though but I wouldn't really know!
I love Australian football and I obviously go for Collingwood! And don't really like soccer!
I hate caged chickens! And love Australia even though I'm moving to Bali but that doesn't matter because I'll teach them Aussie rules football!

@Citychick11Thanks for that, but we don't have Jersey Giants in New Zealand. So it cannot be a Jersey Giant. Sorry I forgot to mention I'm located in New Zealand.

It may also be a Black Australorp.
