    your head.... ~(*.*)~
    Just got a new frizzle chook and is the same age as my other chick )aprox 3 weeks old) and my other chick (named Pig) is apparently a frizzle pekin bantam. But my new one (lets say its name is white just for ease). White is much bigger than Pig and White has a small Wattle coming through and haven't seen Pigs wattle but haven't checked recently.
    White is much bigger than Pig and can't have a rooster.
    Any clues to breed and sex?

    White has 5 toes, is very active and jumps and flys around the place, still cheeping, white skin, and white frizzy feathers (I do know White is a frizzle), seems to have grey chick fluff and growing the white feathers, feathered feet.

    Thanks ^.^

    Maybe White is not a bantam sized breed, that would explain why it is larger- sure is a beautiful bird.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I agree with drumstick diva; White is likely a full sized Frizzle as opposed to a bantam. I don't see anything about White screaming rooster, but young frizzles can be very difficult to sex from a photo. I would suggest posting White's pic (full body photo showing head, comb, and tail) on our What Breed or Gender is This? section at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this and let our experts there take a look at it. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. I hope for your sake that White is a pullet.
