    Out of all my little ones, she is my sweetheart! I want so badly for her to be a hen- so please someone, tell me she is!

    I want to say she's a boy. However, there's still a hen body shape, at least for now.

    That is a lot of red on the face for a girl, how old is the chick?

    Sorry but with those pink wattles and comb at that age, it's most likely a little roo.
