    I'm new to chickens, but have read through a lot of posts. Still trying to figure out what sex this chick is. I got him from someone who ordered 50 female chicks. We picked 4. It's my understanding that even sexed from the hatchery, there is a 10% error rate. This chick just seems bigger and stronger than the others. They are 6 weeks old. Any opinions about Peanut are appreciated.

    I own the twin to that bird...


    I am calling mine a boy because of the tail feathers, hackles and the pea comb is easily defined. Also it is very flashy and I think the rule of thumb is flashy is a boy.....

    I am guessing it is 10-12 weeks old.

    Like I said I am guessing.


    Re-doing the guess with names now that you changed the game.........[​IMG]

    Peanut is a boy .,,,the rest girls

    I agree, the coloring and patchiness is indicative of a cockerel.
