    I posted this chick a week or two ago and was asked to wait. Posting again in hopes of finding out if I have a girl or boy. Its the only chick I have out of two lavenders that I bought from a local breeder and the other chick didnt make it. Trying to decide if I want to buy more in hopes that I get a hen.

    Still too young. You will probably be able to tell at 3 to 4 weeks but even that is early. I would get a few more just in case if it were me.

    Welcome to BYC! It is a little young still. It's not looking like a cockerel as of now, though.
    Btw, very clear pictures! [​IMG]

    Could be a hen but I agree, it's too young. As it develops, watch the comb. If it stays small and pale pink its probably a girl but if it gets big and/or bright red, it's a rooster
