Hi! New to chickens! pullet or cockerel?
Greetings from Kansas, minismommy15, and ! Pleased you joined our flock! I am a terrible chicken gender guesser but the folks in the following link are great: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this
And if you are new to the chicken game you can pick up some great knowledge in the Learning Center here:
Lastly, if you like to chat with local chicken keepers you can find your state link in this thread:
Good luck to you and thanks for joining BYC!
Welcome. Your chick is too young to tell if it's a pullet or a cockerel right now.
There aren't any "signs" yet at this age? The comb or feathers?
How old is it? It still has chick fluff and no obvious comb, so you have to wait. Some breeds can be feather sexed, but that has to be specifically bred for, and as Javas aren't a sex-link or auto-sexing breed you can't tell.
Usually around 4-6 weeks you'll start to see redness in it's comb if it's a cockerel.
Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.
That bird is too young to sex.
Welcome to Backyard chickens. I recognize your chick from "what breed or gender is this." After a few weeks please post new photos it's best if the bird is standing on it's own.
Also a good shot from the front showing head and any comb growth.
Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us!
