    Hi I have a 6 week old chick who I suspect is a roo. Its the only 1 with pink comb and yellow legs. The other 2 have black/grey legs and comb.

    Any tips would be great!

    Also breed would be helpful (they hatched from blue eggs)

    I agree, looks like a male with, what I think I see is, a three row pea comb. Most likely an easter egger. Six weeks is still young though, so you might want to hang onto him for a few more weeks and update again

    Thanks for your help. Will update in a few weeks. Cant keep roos unfortunately. And I have 3 silkies as well. But they will have to wait till much longer

    Yeah thats what I'm thinking. Maybe I should sell him now rather than later. I have 2 more and I'd only like to keep 1 hen. Something to think about.
