    At 6 weeks this pic was taken? I'm going to have to say Roo as well because of how pink the comb and wattles are.

    I wouldn't give up on it yet. I say it is way too young to tell yet.

    I have a Black Bantam Cochin who's comb was starting to get red at a very young age. I thought mine was a roo until she started laying. You may still hold some hope for a hen. [​IMG] for you!

    A friend of mine hatched the chicks. The eggs were from my aunt. I have 2 chicks and she has 3. One of hers has a very red and larger comb than this one. The other chick I have is a cochin mix and I think it is a girl.

    I will just have to wait a little longer. Thanks for the responses.
