    My wife and I just got this chick about a month maybe. My wife is becoming rally attached but as te bird grows im more and more unsure if it is a hen or rooster. In our area we are unable to keep roosters... I bought her from some mexicans at the flea market. I asked is it a hen or rooster he said when you deal with chickens as long as i have you can just tell. My mexican lie detector went off in my head but i ignored it please help THEESE ARE REALLY LARGE IMAGES SO YOU CAN SEE SOME DETAIL

    Okay, approximately 4 weeks old. Just going off of lack of comb/wattles and no color in the face yet, I would say female. But that's just my guess.

    Oh, you could post a picture of her standing all by herself. Females tend to have a less upright stance than males.

    I think it has the relaxed posture of a pullet. I wouldn't even know where to begin with guessing the mix. I bet she had some purebred great-great-great-great grandparents ;)

    I think mixed breed pullet. Rose comb and yellow legs could mean wyandotte somewhere.

    Definitley looks like a pullet to me. As far as breed? Who knows other then mixed. It's even a little feather legged.

    I think pullet. By 4-5 weeks most of the boys are starting to get pink combs. Congrats!!
