    This is my 8 week old Partridge Rock chick. I am suspect about the sex since it hasn't filled out around its neck and I have seen it attempt to fight another chick. I was told that it was sexed but I know that it's not 100% so it makes me sad to see it act different than the others. The comb seemed to still be light colored and small and the waddles are not very noticeable currently. I have looked at the it's legs to check for the spurs but there isn't much of a sign as of now. I hope someone can help with the picture. If you need more photos I can put some more on the thread.

    A cockerel would feather in with a black chest.

    Thank you for the responses. I will post more pictures as she keeps growing. Wednesday they will all be going outside for good so hopefully having more space will make them all happy.
