    Me and my husband are debating over whether our Cornish X chicken (who I rescued from a commercial chicken house) is a rooster or hen? It has a large comb than the other hens, but it is much larger all over as far as that goes (comes with the breed I suppose) Here are some pics of her/him:

    And a full body pic:

    He/She is about 6 weeks old, if that helps...

    Thanks!!!

    I'm saying cockerel. I got all sexed males from a bin at the local feed store and they look like that.

    Here are my 4 when they were about 5 weeks old. Can you tell which one is definitely a boy? [​IMG] Yours sure looks a lot like him. [​IMG]

    LOL you are right, they are so cute :)
    I named him Clucky when I thought it was a hen so I guess the name sticks. He is my favorite of all 11 chickens and he follows me around everywhere.
