    So I have this single chick who is now 5 weeks old and I just cannot figure out whether it's a boy or a girl!! I'm usually quite good at picking these things, but I haven't had chicks in over a year and I usually have more than one to compare them to each other. It's a mix breed... Bantam Australorp hen X a Sussex mix rooster.

    These photos were taken today, the chick hit 5 weeks old today.
