    I posted on another thread and was told to try it here. So what I'm trying to find out is can you tell at 4 weeks is a chick is a male? This particular chick has a comb coming in where all the others seem to have theirs close to the head. Is this a sign or not?

    I took this today. The daddy is a GLW.

    That is a cockerel, no doubt.

    Definitely a cockerel :)
    Pullets don't get any color in their comb til they are at POL.

    Well then, anyone that lives somewhat close to me can have a 5 week old cockerel if you want one. If he turns out like his daddy he'll be a pretty boy for sure and good with the girls.

    Thanks all.
     
  8. Yep, that's a cockerel
