    Silver Sebright, 6 1/3 weeks old. My educated guess is female. What do you all think?

    Not an expert BUT I have been reading and reading and reading about them. From everything I've read, the comb of a cockerel would be really pink by this age usually. If I were to put money on it, I'd say pullet, too.

    But I wouldn't put a lot of money on it...
    ;)

    I've never had sebrights, but I would think pullet at this point :)

    i had a gold seabright bantam, and it was crowing at that age and had a very bright comb, had to rehome him due to no roosters in our area....he was a sweetheart, still heartbroken

    I am so sorry....
    :hugs
    I have a Silver Sebright in the brooder right now, and that tiny chick is the sweetest, cuddliest, most charming little thing. I hope it's a she and not a he. I can keep roosters, but having a rooster raises other issues for me, and I'd likely have to do the same.

    Related question: around what age do Sebrights usually develop combs? I wanna keep an eye on my Picotee...
