    Hi!

    This little babes was born October 8th, so only 1.5 months but any early guesses on what it might be? (I had to include a photo of baby as a newborn because cuteness lol use newer photo as reference)

    It’s a Brahma/black sex link cross.

    Yes very cute! I love broody mother and babies photos!
    Unfortunately I'm leaning towards cockerel for your chick. That comb is quite pink and those shanks are very thick for a pullet, but by no means certain at this stage. A close up shot showing the comb might make it easier.

    True. I think maybe wait a week so we can see if the comb grows

    I’d probably say pullet. The comb production is not that pink. But still I would post a picture in a few weeks. It’s still a very cute bird.

    Leaning towards cockerel at this point. :) Considering its comb type, which is usually slower to develop, the size is rather suspicious.

    Just assuming that's a pea comb, of course. :) Even if not, I'm still heavily thinking cockerel unless things change in the future.

    It's early, but I also think it's very likely to be a cockerel.
