    Any ideas on this chick. Its about 10ish weeks. I assumed it would be a rooster but it really is looking to me like a hen.

    It does look like a hen, possibly a wellsummer. On my iPad the pic isn't too clear.

    single comb. no muffs or beard. no leg feathering. Its breast is feathered like its back. No salmon feathers at all. Legs are very dark. Black I think

    i would go with welsummer then and a pullet. mcmurry is pretty good with not sending EE's as their free chicks but usually are cockerels
