    This is my 5 week old jubilee Orpington. I know it's hard to sex them but I can't have a roo so I'm just wondering if anyone has an educated guess. I wanted several to be sure I got a hen but only one hatched[​IMG]

    Just a guess but, I'm thinking male - comb is so red, so early.

    Yeah that's what I though too. Sad. My husband is pretty attached to this one

    Though I will say that this picture made it look way more red than it actually is

    He turned out to be a rooster. A handsome boy too! Wish we could have kept him but we live in town right now. He went to a lady who wanted to breed him. He's happy with his own hens now
