    I was told it was a rooster and about a month old. Its head seems to be a cream color while its body is coated with a dark brown and black pattern and up to the black tail. The feet are yellow and seems to have a tad of grey within the dark brown and black patterns. Its beak is yellow at the end of the tip. He is a little over 4". Hopefully its not to early to determine the breed of the chick. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    &BTW can anyone actually verify that this is a male. and also the tail raises much higher than shown in these pictures.

    -Anything will help

    It is definitely a rooster. It would help if you had a picture of it as a chick before it got feathers.

    Why do you have just ONE chick?? Chickens do not do well when raised alone.

    Yes it looks like a male but more importantly you need to raise chicks together in a group of at least 4. Honestly, 6 or 7 together is better but if the city only allows 4 hens then just raise 4.

    Looks like a little black breasted red old English game bantam cockerel. He's cute!
