    It looks to me that it is a male. It is only 6 1/2 weeks old and the other one I have that I am sure is a hen is 8 1/2 weeks and has no comb yet.[​IMG]

    That's a lot of comb for 6.5 weeks old - very likely it's a cockerel.

    Sorry, but it's definitely a cockerel :(

    It looks like a male to me with that big comb at only 6 ½ weeks. My Blue Andalusian girls are 8 weeks and their combs are tiny!

    This is my Blue Andalusian pullet at 6 weeks old for reference. You definatley have a boy there, but if you can keep roosters, do it! Blue andalusian roosters are so pretty.
