    I'm not exactly sure when this chick was born but I do know that it is atleast 4 weeks old. It was quite a bit bigger than the other chicks that I got I would guess it is atleast 5 to 6 weeks. But I'm thinking it is a roo what do you think? If it is I need to find a home for it and I think they ajust eaiser when they are smaller. Please Help!!!!

    I'd give the chick at least a few more weeks, could be a roo or a hen. One of my mom's friends gave away 2 "roosters" that turned into hens [​IMG]

    those are some thick legs...i vote cockeral.

    also, it may be the same age as the others if it is a roo...they spring up sometimes.

    he's a cutie!

    wait a few more weeks. (about 4 months is the best) then you should be able to tell. I wanna say hen. but it looks like a rooster attitude. Pink wattles/comb. and thick legs. but that doesn't mean anything, i got a hen that has legs about the size of a quarter( maybe not that big. but they look like it). body like a rooster huge comb, and TALL. shes even got spurs about 2"5 inches long.if it weren't for her hen feathers and her laying eggs and hatching a couple clutches of biddies.. I'd think she was a rooster

    PS.. she's crowed once or twice before too [​IMG]
