    From the size of his headspot I'd say it's a roo.

    I hope not, they were all supposed to be pullets!!! I know there are other characteristics besides head spot to rely on, but don't know what they are, so if someone will post those...I will try my best to sex the chick and also post pics showing those specific characteristics.

    Besides color which is not 100% on BR chicks, look for thicker legs, the comb starting to pinken anywhere from 3 weeks to about 5 weeks old, and wattles start to show up in that same time frame.

    What a cutie!
