    Any guesses on this little one? I got four new babies from a friend yesterday. They are 6 weeks old and she didn't know breed or gender for any of them. This one has more pink/red on the face and wattle development.

    Looks like maybe RIRs and possible cockerel, but time will tell :)

    Haha, X2 on that. It's pretty much impossible to tell gender in a chick this young unless it's a really early blooming rooster or if you are using different sexing techniques besides comb and wattles sexing, which is how I typically prefer to sex chickens. 6-8 weeks old is the "Sweet spot" where you can start to pick out the roosters out of pullets. :)

    Vent sexing shouldn't be attempted unless you really know what you're doing :D
