    Age for first chick?

    And the tag-on post is a 100% male, absolutely zero maybe there.

    ETA : d'oh, age is in subject. I would say probably male -- that comb has a good bit of development for 6 weeks.

    I referred to your post as being tagged onto another post hoping it would be clear whom I meant. I haven't really figured out how to work the post quotation or poster reference on the new site yet.
