    Hi - we hatched 6 chicks from our Creole cockerel / Gold partridge hen. Think we have worked out who is who apart from this one (will post other pics later to check). Any ideas please? Just over 4 weeks old. Thank you.

    Hi :welcome

    From the few Pekin I have hatched and raised I would say you have a pullet there. I've found at 4 weeks the cockerels have been much redder and more developed.

    This is one of my cockerels at about 6-8 weeks, I can't quite remember. The black one in the back of the pic of the same age is a pullet ~
