    So I think it's a dark Brahma, seeing as it has a pea comb, but I'm not sure at all.

    I'm praying it's a rooster, I need one to keep the girls in check. It's about 4 weeks old.

    I voted rooster because it's feathering out so slowly and I see a little red in the comb. Could be wrong, though.

    I agree with you there. All of my other babies have pretty much feathered out at this point. They are all at the weird dinosaur-chicken phase, whereas this baby is still half chick. And thank you!

    Boy! Black feathering is a dead give away. Females are penciled.
