    I am concerned about the pinkish comb. Is this chicken a rooster?[​IMG]

    Give a full body shot, showing his back end from a side view. It does look rooish though.

    X 2 on better pictures. How old is it? That pinkish comb and what looks to be patchy color does seem rooish.

    With the color in the comb already and the red in the shoulders it's likely a roo.

    She or he is 4-5 weeks old. I'm sad if it is a rooster. I can't keep them.

    Does the added pictures make it more for sure it's a Roo? Thanks for your input!

    I am not sure but I think I see the start of some saddle feathers there. That partnered with the redness of the comb & those thick legs say roo to me. Sorry... [​IMG]

    My EE was the one I thought looked like a roo and she turned out to be a hen. Give it a few more weeks.

    That's a rooster. No hen will be colored like that.
