    I know BO are hard to sex. This one is about six weeks old... S/he feathered out really fast! Anyone want to hazard a guess on gender?

    I'm guessing roo. I have a 15 week old BO. He hasn't crowed yet but is chasing the pullets.

    Because of the comb right? That is what we are thinking... but this little one feathered out by week 2. Comb size and color haven't changed at all... so perplexing [​IMG]

    Yes, I was thinking that because of the comb size. If my 15 week old BO didn't have the large red comb and chase the pullets I would think he was a pullet. I'll try to get a picture of him.

    If it is a cockerel... I'll be in trouble. I will have too many [​IMG]
    We then will have to decide who to keep.... not fun or easy
