    We hatched a group of chicks and this one is super friendly to me and runs over to be snuggled and held. I think it might be a too tho. Hatched on Jan 9, so just under 2 months old. Thanks!

    Can you get a picture of the head in a little better lighting? What I can see seems to show an awful lot of comb/color for just under 2 months of age - which would point to supporting your suspicion.

    I was trying to take a head pick but as I was pointing the phone he decided to hop onto my phone to perch. Lol, he's so friendly and cuddly I will keep him regardless but I was just hoping maybe I'd get lucky and he'd be a hen.
