    I have a 7 week old FBCM... obvious comb, but VERY pale. And minimal wattles. Any hope for this one or should I just cry now and move to acceptance?

    I want to say pullet but, for 7 weeks old, it seems slow to feather out another photo at 10 weeks should be more defining.

    Agree that it seems awfully small for 7 weeks, but chicks develop at different rates sometimes. The comb is large but not so large that it's definitely a cockerel. Give it a few more weeks and try again.
