    Hi,

    This little fella is supposed to be rooster but at five weeks looks like pullet.

    Appreciate your thoughts.

    Would wait a few more weeks but looks more girl.The first pic with the other chick behind it looks like it’s probably a boy

    The leghorn chick in background is definite boy. The Pekin though, I’m leaning towards pullet too. I wanted to breed him with my hens but seems I’ll have to start looking again.
