This lil chick is 12 days old, light brahama....thoughts on male or female?
Do you have a pic of its head showing the comb growth?
X2 also the legs too.
It was 8 days old in this picture
I'm thinking female.
Oh good, I bought it as a female, but ya know how that goes.....what can I start to look for to help me out in sexing it?
Females feather out faster than males and on a male the comb will grow faster and pink up while a female may get the comb but they dont pink up until much older. I would have to say you will know for sure by time they are 5 to 6 weeks old.
Do all females feather out faster or just this breed?
Usually females feather out faster in general. It's a little young to tell the sex of this one, but it does definitally look like a pullet so far!
I think it is a girl.
