This is Margot.
Is it a Golden Penciled Hamburg?
Is it a Ms. or a Mr.?
I'm seeing a single comb? Maybe a Campine? Would vote cockerel with that much comb at four weeks.
Hmm. Mega bummer if our Margot is a Roo.
But at first I thought she was a Campine too, but then after research I found that Campines have a cup comb. Margot has what looks like a spiked rose comb maybe?
I'm rooting for a girl!!
I'm thinking cockerel, and "he" looks like a Campine to me. I think that you're thinking of Buttercups when you're thinking of birds with a cup comb. This bird has a single comb, which Campines have.
Sicilians have a cup comb, hamburgs have a rose comb which at that age would sort of look like 3 little rows of bumps, and campines have a fairly large single comb. I would definitely go with campine, but at only 4 weeks, even that much comb could still be a pullet (my guess would be cockerel though). Here is a pick of a campine pullet just a bit older than yours.
Thank you! That pic is very encouraging.
Update. Margot is now 7 weeks old. Any guesses on sex?
The pictures aren't working on my computer, but I can see the smaller version on the side. From just the little picture I can see, I would say pullet. Campines (which it appears to be) have modified hen-feathering, not as extreme as Sebrights, but it still makes them hard to sex. If it is a hamburg, which I don't think it is, then it is definitely a pullet as the males are a different color pattern. Do you know what type of comb it is?
My guess is pullet, but I'm not positive!
I'm thinking pullet for now.
Looks like a pullet.
