It’s 6 weeks today. I was thinking Dominique? Also, any guesses on gender? I read that their combs can start to redden early, even in pullets. It’s such a sweet bird. Thanks in advance!

    Looks like you have a Dominique pullet. They have Rose combs. This is what my Dominique cross Cockerels looked like at 6 weeks (the barred chicks). Their combs were much redder and their wattles were bigger.
