    I can't help you, because I'm sweating out the gender of some silver sebrights and 1 golden sebright, myself.

    However, my 8 wk old silvers have combs just like yours does, only the spike on each has a little kink in it. In doing research, I was told that Sebright pullets also have the spike.

    We can both worry about it, together.

    I have a silver sebright hen that I got as free rare from MM last year. She had a nonexistent comb until she was about 6 months old. I am no expert, but I would think you have a roo. I could be wrong, however since I had no others to compare her to. She had no visible comb for months.

    I have gold sebrites as well. The males combs tend to be wider at the base near the nostrils and the females are skinny. Both have that little spike at the back. When I hatch them out I am usually right about which are males with the wider comb theory. But one nevr knows. i tell people its a boy if it crows and a girl if it gives you eggs to be on the safe side!

    Quote:I have a 8 week old sebright HEN that looked alot like that. She's the "dominant" female of the flock and while they were establishing the pecking order at about 6 weeks I swore she was a hen. I would give it another week or two.

    Looks to be a cockerel to me, but those wattles are pretty small. I'm not exactly sure, but if pressed I would say roo.

    Hard to say... my sebright rooster had a comb just like that, and my girl's was much smaller.
