    The pic above is a chick that belongs to a friend/neighbor. This friend told me she was 100% sure it was a pullet because of coloring.

    From what I've read, Sebrites can be difficult to sex. I thought I had to wait until mine were much older to sex--and I have one that is very similar to this one, just a week or two younger. (I'm still very new.) I just wanted to see if anyone here at BYC knew some secret trick that I didn't. I'm starting to think this friend of mine is taking a wild guess. [​IMG]

    Sebrights can be more difficult to sex because the roosters are "hen feathered". This means that they don't get the long pointy hackle and saddle feathers that other roos do but Sebright roos will develop very prominent combs compared to Sebright hens.

    What kind of comb does this chick have?
