    I am a first time chick owner and I am having a really hard time figuring out if this little one is a male or female? What do you guys think? I'll add more pictures in the comments! Thank you :) [​IMG]

    Hard to tell at that age,you could check is hind LegS to see if he has stubs (spurs growing in) or he starts to get his comb and wattles faster then the others

    looks female to me. why? because of the dark in her legs. males don't have that there legs are lighter. I believe I'm seeing the dark streaks on her legs. I wish you could get a better leg shot so I can see for sure.

    It looks female to me.

    Are you positive it's a Rock? I'm seeing pink skin, which indicates Marans.
