    This is the last chick we have, all the others were certainly cockerals... except our frizzle pullet who's legs didn't work.. she passed on a while back..
    I helped this one pip out, her "foster" mom is a silkie.. she is still cheeping but is a big baby..
    Dad is a BCWP, and at first we thought rooster.. and that mom was our BSL.. but as its grown.. it has a ROSE COMB... the only hen we have that has that..
    That lays big eggs, or did.. is our SLW... Tammy..

    It's hard to tell. Are those pointy feathers I see? I think it's a boy.
    We should have some sort of follow up; where people report and picture post later, so we can know our chicken predicting stats. I think I'm about 50/50.

    I don't know...it looks a little girlish to me. I think you're going to have to wait til it either crows or lays an egg! [​IMG] I don't see any pointy feathers on the neck or above the tail.

    Kinda big wattles for a girl at 4 months. I'd go with cockerel/roo.
