    [​IMG] glad you have joined us.

    Sorry I know nothing about Bantams, but for most breeds 3 weeks is too early to decide.

    I would suggest you post the pic and question on "what breed, gender" forum and maybe some one with experience can help.

    Why do you think he is a roo so early? Do you have other chicks to compare with him?

    A roo? Hard for me to tell in that picture.
    Not quite old enough to be sure for me.
    But if I had to guess, it's either a roo or a
    hen.

    But since you done went and joined up, why
    not give that little chicken a chance to grow a
    might more. Say another month or so. Then we'll
    all guess again.

    Meanwhile, why not run around the fourms here
    and check things out?
