    I hatched a few of these this year. My HUGE guess is boy. Still a little early to tell for sure. I hope I'm right if you wanted a boy and I hope I'm wrong if you wanted a girl.

    Its a little too young to tell the gender. For now, I'd tentatively guess cockerel, based on comb size.

    Way too early to tell, sorry.

    I also am leaning towards rooster. But it is still very young, post pics again in a week or 2.

    I just have to tell you that your avatar is just too cute. I have to stop and look at it each time I see it. Is that chicks in a teacup? Love it.

    Yeah, it is. And it's kinda bittersweet. Those two are the only two (out of 12) I got from my very first hatch. At about 4 days, one had to be put down for prolapsed vent. The one remaining is the little guy or girl that I'm asking about in this post. He/she is quite spoiled, even though I got chicks from the hatchery at the same time so it's not lonely.
