    Coco is now 2 and a half weeks old and I am preying that it is a girl.
    My 6 year old daughter has fallen in love with her but if its a boy we can't keep him.
    I know its to early to tell but wanted to ask any way. BOY or GIRL

    Much too early to tell, but on the other hand...so far so good? Not seeing any early male characteristics pop up.

    It's too late for the wing feathers to tell us anything, but it appears to have no tail feathers, or not enough to notice. That could indicate it's a cockerel, but not conclusive.

    You'll know more in about four weeks if the hear gear starts appearing red.
