Can you post a picture of the face? and maybe a side view?
Does this help?? I will try and find a couple better ones. Thanks
I'm thinking rooster,but I can't tell for sure.
I am thinking rooster due to the feathering/non feathering on the back, but not being able to see a good facial picture with the comb, it is hard to tell. It seems to have thicker legs and in the first picture is standing tall.
How old is he/she?
Only 3 weeks. I think he is a roo, but I thought some other opinions would know more then me=)
In my experience, the wattles are the best indicator. At week 7 or 8 the wattles will develop quickly. Then it will be very easy to tell whether it's a pullet or cockerel - males will develop big red ones as well as deep red skin around the beak. There is some basis to conditionally sex them based on the "haircut"; males usually have a "choppy" or "edgy" crest while the hens have a rounder and fluffier crest. You should post a close-up of the face in about 3 or 4 weeks, when it should be clearer what you have.
