    This little guy is a lavender (dad) x cuckoo lavender (mum) Pekin (Cochin) bantam, is he a boy or girl?
    I'm thinking boy but I have three different patterns in my chicks, 4 all one colour which I'm pretty sure are girls, a couple look like this guy with the pale face but no head dot, a few with pale face and head dot and a few one colour with head dot.

    I know the ones with head dots are boys but I'm not sure about this guy.

    WAY too young to tell. Take more pictures when he/she's a few weeks old.

    Oh sorry! I was told these chicks would be sex linked so figured I should be able to tell at this age.

    I don't see a head spot, so is should be female. However, that light down can make it really hard to see a spot this young. I hatched out splash sex links and could not tell the difference cause of the light down. I'd say female for now, but keep an open mind about gender and watch carefully for barring/cuckoo patterning.
