We are knew to the chicken world! Any clues on the gender of our 3 week old chick
Hi and welcome to BYC. I'm no expert, but if you post pics on this forum once its 6 weeks or so, you have a better chance of an accurate answer -
Welcome to BYC - so glad you've joined us.
For a good gender assessment (granted 3 weeks is still a bit early) you really need nice, clear photos that show the whole bird (meaning not being held) in a natural, standing position and taken from the side as there are characteristics that can be seen from that angle that factor into gender. I will say that the comb is flesh colored (pinking would indicate cockerel - though that can still develop in the next few weeks) and there is no discernible wattle development (cockerels develop comb and wattle size and color ealier than pullets)
agree with Ol Grey Mare

If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out
