    The first 2 pictures are of my cream legbar of questionable gender and the 3rd is the male, The first pic is why I'm not sure about sex she/he has a small white dot on its head but it is feathering out much faster and comb seems much smaller then the one I know is a boy.

    Do you have pictures from day old? I'm thinking female, but she's old enough to have lost some of the head stripe.

    [​IMG]These are the best I have from the day I got them, this chick has been really hard to figure out. definitely a hatchery bird as the markings are not well defined.

    I'm thinking female. If she is, I sure wouldn't use her as breeding stock, though. The auto sexing trait is one that needs to be culled hard for, and this chick didn't have it. Her offspring will be just as frustrating, from my understanding.
