    I'd say yes. Its a black cochin, and likely a cockerel. That much comb that young

    Thank you! It actually doesn't have much a comb and the comb it does have is completely yellow. I think the top pic makes it look there is more there than there is because the shop vac is behind it's head! The chick is just over 5 weeks old. (I added a better comb pic to the original post.)

    5 week large breed..... coin toss.... another week should tell the tale. But knowing its a large breed I'm leaning slightly towards pullet.

    Pulling this up for posterity, that little chick was a roo!
