    If you got it from a back yard breeder, then I think it is probably a mixed breed. I don't recognize the color pattern as belonging to any breed in particular at this point.

    If you got it from a hatchery or feed store, then it must be a pure breed, but which one is difficult to say at so young an age. Maybe others will have an idea, so wait and see.

    This chick is also much too early to sex accurately. 7 weeks is good time to re-post about that.

    I've never seen a chick quite like this one. Where did you get if from. That much comb this young generally points towards cockerel. But like Jed said, its still to young to say for sure.

    I got it from a local vendor. I guess these are incubated chicks. He never mentioned me the breed but he said its a country chicken not a farm chicken (broiler/meat chicken).
