    I purchased chicks online through cackle hatchery. All but one died as soon as I received them and the one that survived might be male :( We were hoping to get a female. It is about 1 month and several days old. What do you guys think![​IMG]

    It may very well be a cockerel. That's early comb development for a young bird.
