    It is so soon to tell but for no particular reason I think it's a cockerel.

    Cute picture, but it's too early to tell by looks. (For this guy, not for every chick.) What color is his comb and what size is it? It's hard to tell in this picture.

    anybody.... somebody... any help is appreciated.... this is my first time raising chicks so I am still learning about all the different things... But I was really hoping and praying all of the chicks were females.... but they are from a straight run.. which after some research I found out its a crap shot of what you get............

    How old is he? He look about 2 weeks.
    Still could be either. If you think to, post a pic when he gets about 4-6 weeks and it'll be easier to tell.
