Isn't this the same one that is supposed to be a black sex-link?

If so, the answers are the same for now. If it is a black sex link it is a pullet, because it does not have the white spot on the head that identifies a male.

If it is a random chick that got mixed in with the black sex links or otherwise misidentified, you have a few weeks to wait before being able to tell for sure.

ETA: Also, you can just go back and add pictures to one of your previous threads on these guys. You don't have to keep making new ones. The old ones will get bumped up when you add to them. :)

No worries! If you can get a few pictures in natural light, including both the comb and the marked feathers, it might help. But it also might just be a mystery for a few more weeks. :lol:

At this age the chick wouldn’t have a white spot.If it is a bsl rooster it will have a badly barred pattern,some white/red feathers around in there as well.
