    this is Clover, my beautiful 6 wk millefleur. i love her a lot but obviously if she's a cockerel we can't keep her...and i have my suspicions. she's very in your face sassy and her comb is big. also does anyone have any experience with the No Crow rooster collar? it supposedly doesn't allow roosters to scream all at once while still letting them chirp and make their other chicken noises :) anyways please help! i love my baby and i definitely want to keep her no matter what

    i also read that at around this age that pullets' feathers are much more developed than cockerels' and Clover is very feathery and full so idk

    At 6 weeks I'm saying cockeral. Sorry.

    A standing side photo of Clover on the ground as it could be helpful to helpful to see how Clover naturally stands. But I think you've got a Clive.

    I'd say boy if hes only 6 weeks. My mille fleur d'uccle chicks at almost 8 weeks have small yellow combs at this point.

    Definitely a cockerel if he's only 6 weeks. No pullet would have that big of a comb at that age.
