That comb looks a bit suspect to me. If it is a boy you should start seeing the comb redden and some reddish wattles showing up - soon. Compare it to your other chicks that age and see if the comb seems more developed. I have some 3 weeks old Black Copper Marans that are obviously boys, so there is some hope that yours is a girl.
