    First off, thank any and all of you in advance for your info!!!

    We are in between 5 and 6 weeks old right now and have what seems to be a pea comb. The comb and such are a good bit more red in tone than the SS we have at the same age range who we've already spotted the difference in a boy and girl there.

    The boys have dubbed this one Daisy, so we are hoping it's not a Donald! ^_~

    Fantastic, thanks ^_^ If anyone has a guess on gender I'm still keeping my fingers crossed it's a girl, but it's good to know where to start researching!

    Well to me it looks like a girl! I have Cornish hens, she looks a lot like them.

    Thanks ^-^ The boys will be happy to hear Daisy gets to stay. We unfortunately cannot have roosters in our area, otherwise I wouldn't mind either way!

    Cornish are very kind I found. They won't lay as much because they were bred for meat. And they will eat more than the others probably. Just some pointers [​IMG]
