    Piper is a bit over 7 weeks and has me stumped on the sex. What's your guess?

    I would say pullet, my cochin rooster had a very red comb at 5 weeks.

    I say pullet, cockerels usually have much redder combs and patchier feathering.

    Thank you everyone. I sure hope she really does end up being a she. But, I guess the only way to tell will involve father time lol.
