    What would you say the sex is? Also, should I be concerned about the missing feathers around its ear? It's about 4 weeks old. [​IMG]

    Much too young, and the feathering looks normal.

    The feathers missing around its ear are probably where the earlobe is forming. It has a pretty large comb for a 4 wk old, so that one is probably a roo, but it may need to develope more before we could tell for sure
