    If it's a cross I doubt you could sex it by color with certainty like you can it pure BR chicks.

    With that said at 5 weeks it looks kinda girly, no little comb at all, and it does appear to have the coloring of a BR pullet. But I don't really know [​IMG]

    I'm going with pullet due to no comb, wattles, and thin legs. [​IMG]

    Well, I wouldn't hold out for eggs in a "few weeks", but maybe in a few months. Looks like a girl to me too. [​IMG]

    Girly girl I think, yea since she is a mix the old white spot on the head trick used in BR IDing is a no go.
