    This chick is about 1 hour old, and get a load of the comb. He? is a black copper marans from an egg the color of the one he? is leaning on. None of his 3 siblings have prominent combs. Does this indicate for certain that he? is a male?

    I know it is way too early to sex this chick, but good grief.

    It's way to early to sex chicks, try around 8 weeks at the earliest to start sexing.
