    I have 6 chicks - 3 are 6 weeks and 3 are 3 weeks old. One the 6 week old pekin is now showing a pink comb.. i have included the live feed to them to show you what she / he looks like. What do you think, if it is a cock then i can't put him in the allotment and will have to rehome him.. [​IMG]

    I can't view your link, but that could just be my computer. Since you called your little one a pekin- I'm going to assume its a bantam. My cochin are LF, but the pictures below may help.....

    This is my suspected roo, Rue. His comb and wattles are much bigger than my other chicks.

    Here he is with his favorite group of girls, whose combs and wattles are much smaller, and much less red. His butt fluff is facing the camera. Good luck- sending you pullet vibes [​IMG]

    Your link doesn't work, but I cut and pasted the address and it worked. They were all under the hover so I couldn't see them.

    Looks like a roo. Give him another week or 2 to be sure.
