    Here's my 7 week old chick hatched by one of my broodies. Got the eggs from a friend the hen was golden comet and the Roo was Ameraucana. Can any of you tell what it may be? I'm hoping it's not a Roo but from what I've read the white GC chicks are roos but since its an EE hopefully that's not true.

    You are correct that you cannot sex the offspring of sex-links at hatch.

    You chick looks like a cockerel to me, but at this age it's hard to be certain. Give him time.

    It looks like a pullet for now, but I could be wrong.
