    At only 4 weeks, does this appear to be a male or female? The comb has become quite pink, but not red. Ideas? Very anxious to know. He is very aggressive and tall, so leads me to think roo.

  2. I'm guessing rooster. I have 11 chicks of that age, and I'm also desperately trying to figure out their genders.. LOL [​IMG]

    Thank you. I'm new to this so I have no clue what type of chicken I have, what the sex is or what kind of comb it has. It is not a single line of bumps, it ends in a bunch of bumps in a cluster.
     
  5. It is a silkie or silkie cross. But, I don't know the sex.

    Take a picture of it's wing feathers and post it. Spread the wing out so that we can see the feathering and takie a picture. Sometimes that can help determine what they are.

    The legs are not hairy like the silkies.

    Anyway, here is a shot of a wing. It's the best I could do. I'm not sure if it shows what you would be looking for. What do you think?
