    I think it would be helpful to post some pics of this chick along side your others. Characteristics like feather growth and size are usually more helpful when you are able to compare between male and female chicks of the same age. Cheers, Mark

    With RIR babies check comb size compared to the other chicks. I have found the males even at an early age the combs will be noticeable bigger. Then by 4 weeks will start to get red.
