    Hatched the 1st of August, so about 2 months old. The only porcelain that hatched from shipped eggs, such a sweetie follows me right into the house. Any idea on gender any one? Thanks for your consideration, Meg.

    At eight weeks on the chick, its comb is a little bigger and pinker than I like to see, but not so much so that I would vote rooster. I'd give it a few more weeks. Very cute little guy, they do make nice pets don't they.

    For now, I'm going to vote pullet. The body shape and stance look feminine, though the comb is rather pink. If it gets redder, you probably have a rooster.

    I hope you all are right! My gut says pullet too, but she is also one of the more of her brooder mates. Thanks all!!

    So I couldn't see the color too well so I rubbed some vetrx on the comb. So I don't see too much change. So I think pullet but please tell me if you think I am kidding myself. Thanks again all.
