Olive eggers are crosses, so the usual barring rules aren't reliable. I would say this one looks female so far, but you will have to watch her comb growth.

Thanks. Yes, the breeder has adult Olive Eggers with this type of barring. This chick is not nearly as aggressive as our others who clearly seem to be little roosters. We are hoping for a pullet since it is so incredibly friendly and cuddly :)

Ok. Now the chick is 6 weeks.... still a girl? How long would you give until to determine with certainty?
