Ok another guessing game here

I’m hoping like hell this is a female because it’s my favourite one out of the bunch.

it’s a blue Australorp (I’m pretty sure)

its 7 weeks old and has been fully feathered like that since it was about 3-4 weeks old.
Although it’s comb is large it’s feathers aren’t too pointy especially around the saddle area. So I’m hoping due to early feathering and the feathers being rounded it’s a possibility to be a girl. Also tail isn’t curling.

either way bloody good looking.

What ya reckon take it back now as a boy or hang in there and see what happens?

Sorry, at only seven weeks of age this bird is definitely male. Large comb and wattles coming in. Too early for saddle feathers. He is a beauty though.😊
