    Hi this is the Delaware chick in our flock. It is 18 days old. Is it too young for anyone to tell if it is a Rooster yet? This is the only one we are unsure of since it came from a friend. Let me know what you think. It is a curious little stinker.

    You may get a better answer if you put this under, What breed or gender is this. I think it's too young to tell yet.

    Quote:It's a little young to see its comb development, but if I had to guess I'd say it's a pullet. Wait for one to two more weeks, then post a current photo. Delaware cockerels have a single comb, which should get larger pretty fast.

    It's a bit early to tell. Males will be marked differently than the females in this breed and in a couple weeks, you'll know.

    It's so cute! My Delaware was and still is the most friendly one in the group. Hope it's a girl for you [​IMG]
