    We purchased 6 sexed chicks. This was supposed to be an amerucana pullet but as she grows I think our Ruth might be a Rufus....help.. (same chick just different lighting )

    How old is the chick? What concerns me is red coming out over the wings - the mark of a cockerel.

    How old? Regardless of gender, that is a beautiful Easter Egger.

    He is 7 weeks old and fairly certain now that he is a roo.

    At 7 weeks, yeah, it's probably a cockerel.
