if a 2 week old chick has more "robust" feet... is it a boy?

One of our chicks have thicker/stronger feet. Could she be a he? I believe it is an EE.

It's hard to say, actually. Signs of roo-ness are more cumulative than singular. You can always have hens that may show one or two signs of 'rooness' but when examined overall, end up being hens.

Post a pic of your baby, and we'll take a look and give you our opinions :)

Here are some pictures.
She? is an EE (I believe...), 2 weeks old. Can't really tell from the photos but she has "thicker" feet than the other chicks I have.

She's really bold, adventurous, and not so scared of hands.

It's much to young to be guessing age. Big think legs can sometimes indicate male, but there are always those pullets who have "manly" legs as well. Post new pictures in a few weeks, and we'll be able to help out a lot more.
