    Hi there,

    I have a 7 week old Plymouth Rock chick that my broody Isa Brown has lovingly raised (and they told me Isa Browns never get broody!) now I am 95% sure it's a boy! but what do you think?

    I think you're correct.

    Are you in Australia, by chance? wondering if that accounts for that nice crisp barring he has.
