    No clue what it is. Pretty sure a roo. He is 2 weeks old. Thanks for any guesses.

    Probably a Production Red, and nothing screaming roo at this point...comb is small, tight and yellow. PR roo's get red and large fast....but any of the breeds, that thus far looks to be a pullet as anything.

    If you were trying to wing sex, that only works with day old chicks and only in breeds that are feather sex-able...the lines have to be bred with slow feather mothers and fast feathering fathers to produce slow feathering males and fast feathering females.

    Interesting. Thanks. Was not trying to feather sex, just show color of wings. This chick already has tail feathers coming on. It was a freebie from hatchery as an exotic. Thanks so much for your reply.
