    Hey all - I'm looking for some opinions on the sex of my black orp chick. S/he is 4 weeks old tomorrow, and I am thinking it is a roo because of the comb and wattles turning pink already. I thought it might be a pullet because when we picked it out, the other chicks (they were 1 week old at the time) had noticeable combs already and were bigger than our chick, but now I am not so sure. Any input would help!

    Taken at 3 weeks (you can see the comb and wattles have progressed quite a bit in the span of a week):[​IMG]


    Thanks in advance for the input!

    More input is welcome, my husband is skeptical (I think out of wanting him to be a pullet!) and I'd love it if more people weighed in!

    Thanks everyone. The breeder that we got him from is letting us exchange him for a 3 mo. old buff pullet. :)
