    Could someone please help me sex and breed this little bantam (the tiny one far right). My kids LOVE this chick. I fear it's a roo! Also, I have no idea what type it is. I believe it's about 6 weeks old?

    I concur that it is indeed a cockerel. I've no clue on breed but I'm sure others will be able to help with that.

    Are you sure it's a chicken? My husband said it looks like a baby turkey.

    Oh goodness! I bought him from tractor supply from a straight run bantam bin as a little fuzz ball. So I guess I can't be certain what he is! He's the same age as the chicks around him, if he was a turkey would he still be the smallest out of same aged chicks amongst chickens?!

    Looks like an Old English Game Bantam and a cockerel. No, it isn't a turkey.
