    I think you will get a much better response at "what breed or gender is this." Welcome to Backyard chickens.

    I will take a guess and say rooster! It's harder to tell at 3.5 weeks but we had a chick who had larger thicker legs at that age than the rest and it turned out to be a rooster. In a couple weeks (?) the comb/wattle may turn red and saddle feathers may start to show so it will be easier to tell.

    Hi and welcome to BYC. As DD says, the best place for responses is the "what breed or gender is this"

    All the best

    I would guess a rooster. Huge feet and a comb starting at 3.5 weeks

    There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around the run. I think it's still to young to tell. Good luck with him/ her though. :frow
