    15 weeks old and our favorite since we got it from the hatchery....thought it was a girl.
    Either way we are keeping has been the friendliest of them all-thanks for any opinions of confirmation[​IMG]

    A bit young to tell for sure. Though looking at photo #3 you appear so far to have a cockerel and three pullets. At this age that's just an educated guess.
