    Could you help me know whether this chick is a roo, or hen?? She is 5 weeks (and 4 days) old.

    I don't have any other chicks to compare her to, so I thought it might be helpful to add pictures of her Mom and Dad.

    And if you have any ideas as to what breed (or mix of breeds) she might be, that would be cool. :)
    Thank you so much!!!

    Her mom (during late winter, so her comb is dry):

    Her Dad's (head, at least):

    This is the chick at 2 weeks old:

    And her at 5 weeks old:

    I added this picture just so you could see her legs in relation to her body.

    Thanks again!
