Given the size and redness of the comb at only 6 weeks, I'm thinking it's a cockerel. (
I think so too.
Is there any behaviour things I should look out for.
Often times, males will behave more bossy, dominate and nosey earlier than pullets.
males also seem to be more outgoing as young chicks than the females
Thank you to all your responses. It's not acting like a cockerel at all. 'He' is acting docile and very quiet.
You're welcome. I wouldn't read anything into behavior at this point. First, all these behavior characteristics are just generalities and there are lots of exceptions. Second, Pekins have a reputation as being a very calm and gentle breed. Combs are a much better indicator of gender than behavior and if that comb really reddens up over the next month you will know for sure you have a cockerel.
