    This is my frizzle cochin named Toadie. I think he's a boy based on behaviour but honestly don't have a clue. What do you think? He/she is about 9 weeks old.

    A picture of my cutie's face. The comb and wattle have started.

    Should I be taking pictures of any other part other than face for sexing?

    I don't know the gender, but they usually want to see the legs and tail.

    Thanks. My husband thinks its a hen as well. And I just double checked, Toadie hatched on May 1 so 9 weeks is right.

    Anyone else? I'm running 50/50 on guesses, which is where I was to begin with. HELP?

    Hurray! Thanks Lisa! No crooked wattles yet. My kids think she's ugly but I love her. Guess out of respect for the gender I'll have to change her name to something prettier than Toadie. And she does look like Chaps!
