    This Chick is Dolly about 5 weeks old. She's a blrw buff cochin cross. I think she might be roo since her comb is kinda big for her age and "she" rushes my hand when I give out goodies. Appreciate and input!

    I'm thinking male, judging by the large wattles. Only my male cochins had any wattles by that age, and my female wyandottes have never had that much for a long time.

    The pics are clickable... they do get bigger. The 2nd one is pretty clear.

    At 5 weeks, I would say little Rooster.
