    My chicks are now 8 weeks old and I have one chick that I can't figure out if it's a girl or boy. My wife loves this little one, it's so sweet, but I can't handle another rooster. So, could someone please give me an idea if it's a hen or rooster? Thank you

    Looks like a cockerel to me! Look how red the comb is and how yellow the legs are.

    Saturday this little one will be 4 months, still no comb, or waddles. This chicken is big, but doesn't look anything like my other roosters. I don't know much about chickens and even less about this one.

    Looks like a boy in body and stance and feathering. The comb is really light though. Still looks like a boy.
